My 16 year old daughter has an opportunity to travel to Kyoto, Japan on a school-related trip. She has severe allergies to nuts and has been hospitalized once for a reaction. Although she is very conscientious about
checking ingredients and notifying waiters, ovbiously a foreign counrty and a long airplane trip present new challenges.
Does anyone have any advice for a trip like this? I was hoping I could figure out a way to explain her allergies on a small card in English on one side an Japanese on the other. Also, what about the health care system there? Do they have similar levels of allergies in their population, thus supporting the experience to treat her if she did have a reaction?
I haven't told her she can go on this trip yet because I'm worried about the allergies. I'd appreciate any advice.
