    Hi all,

    Thanks for all of this helpful information. I am going to be in Japan for over a month and am worried about my medications. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, Asthma, and allergies among other things. My med list is a mile long! My question is this: since I will have over a 30 day supply of my medications, is it best to go ahead and inform Customs or do I let them ask me? I sent an email to the address listed above clarifying if the meds on my list are ok to bring in. And I am finding conflicting information about Tramadol. So I put that on the list as well. I’d like to follow the rules but I also know that I will be exhausted and stupid after the long flight but I don’t want to be detained or arrested!

    Your advice/suggestions/comments are all welcome and thank you!
