Pets are like your family.
If you are thinking about bringing your pets to Japan, you may, but there are many things you need to know.
And you really should start preparing for it at least 6 months before your arrival date.
If it’s only a short period of time you are living in Tokyo or anywhere in Japan, I’d say leave your pets at home get someone you can rely on to look after your pets while you are away. Stress to the pets during two flights, trips to and from the airport, and being caged for a long fight hours plus more hours for the quarantine, would be too much, poor things!
If you really want to bring them with you, then please visit Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and fisheries of Japan Animal Quarantine Service web-site:
Rules are different between the regions, countries with a history of Rabies and Rabies-free countries.
I hope all of you and your pets are happy in Japan!
