The‘ Foreign Office’ has advised against all non-essential travel to Tokyo and the north of Japan, while airlines last night warned customers still travelling to expect cancellations and delays.
Although Tokyo has been largely unaffected by the 8.9-magnitude quake, transport has been severely disrupted, with little or no public transport running from Narita and Haneda airports to the capital.
The Foreign Office warned travellers to expect widespread power cuts and aftershocks from the quake.
In a statement, it said: “‘We advise against all non-essential travel to Tokyo and the north-east of Japan whilst we assess the damage caused by the 11 March earthquake.'”
