Please refrain from non-essential and non-urgent coming to Ogasawara Island.
The number of patients with Novel Coronavirus infection increases nationwide but here in Ogasawara Village, no suspected infection has been identified so far.
Ogasawara Village does not have a system to confirm Novel Coronavirus infections. If you are suspected infection and need an inspection or medical care at the mainland Japan Hospital, access is limited.
In this situation, please refrain from non-essential and non-urgent coming to Ogasawara Island for the time being to ensure the security of villagers and peoples who are planning to visit here.
We do not refuse to come to Ogasawara Island for the necessary business such as maintenance of infrastructures in the village etc.
Inside the ship or in the village, we ask you to pay attention to take measures against infectious diseases.
We also request you not coming to Ogasawara Island during the Golden Week holidays.
Notice: Golden Week holidays are from ship departing Tokyo on April 29 to ship departing Chichijima on May 9.
