I am trying to decide whether to pay £80 for an inoculation against Japanese encephalitis. I will be traveling in May from Seoul down to Busan, staying in Musan, then having a boat trip to some islands in Tongyeong South Korea, and staying there overnight. Does anyone know if that is an area that has a high risk of Japanese encephalitis?
Is there a high risk of Japanese encephalitis near Mount Fujji? As it is a national park with lakes, I thought there might be a higher risk there?
I basically don't want to pay out that much unnecessarily if it's not essential, and we are not at risk.
