The Australian department of foreign affairs is a bit more specific
about its concerns, which gives a bit more basis to make a decision:

  Australians should not travel to Tokyo, areas surrounding Tokyo and
  Honshu north of Tokyo due to limitations on essential services,
  infrastructure damage, aftershocks and continuing uncertainty about
  the status of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant, unless their
  presence in the area is essential. Australians in these areas should,
  unless their presence is essential, make arrangements to leave –
  either to Southern Japan or elsewhere.

That sounds bad, but the question is what things will be like in two
months from now.
