This is my main concern as well. As I was chatting with another FTer today, I'm not worried about the illness itself, I'm worried about the travel prohibitions.

Lightbulb Scavenging

{No colors because I know our thread moderator doesn't like that.}
As somebody who has stayed out of this thread, but monitored it; the contemplation that international airlines, including those from North America, may face hundreds, if not thousands of cancellations of passengers heading to Asia - but still wanting to operate those flights, will cut airfares to the point that I can afford to attend this!
I'll find cheap places to stay in Nagoya. They may be agonizing that their rooms | dorms aren't being booked either.
Nothing else to scribe so far.

Maybe? Had been leaning toward Osaka, but I do have to fly out of NRT ... no set plan.

I suppose itís because of your job. I donít see any general restrictions or quarantine requirements for anybody returning to Australia from Japan unless you were on Diamond Princess and a non-Australian national.

If you haven’t been following FT’s Coronavirus and Travel forum, the best places to check for latest travel restrictions are:

- Your country’s travel advisory for Japan (or any country you plan to visit)
- IATA’s regular updates on changes to Timatic database https://www.iatatravelcentre.com/int...1580226297.htm

My flights are via ICN and SIN, so obviously my attendance is in jeopardy at this time.

Soo... finally caught back up on this thread. Still have tickets confirmed to NGO from TYO and was waiting for some space to open on the return to confirm. Didn't realize the post do has been termed it seems.

Will keep an eye here- want to go as this is the annual highlight of my spring travel to see how things evolve. Thanks!
