NJPW has officially confirmed the cancellation of five more shows.

The NJPW events that were scheduled to take place in Shizuoka on Sunday, April 12, Yamanashi on Monday, April 13, Fukui on Wednesday, April 15, Ishikawa on Thursday, April 16, and Kanagawa on Saturday, April 18 have been canceled. All five shows were supposed to be part of NJPW's Road to Wrestling Dontaku tour,

NJPW wrote about the cancellations:

In response to the continuing Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, New Japan Pro-Wrestling has arrived at the decision to cancel five additional Road to Dontaku events that were scheduled between April 12 and 18. These cancellations join the cancelled Sakura Genesis event on March 31 and the first date on the Road to Dontaku tour on April 11.

We deeply apologise to fans who were looking forward to these events. Ultimately, the health and safety of our fans, wrestlers and staff, as well as society at large is our utmost concern, and we will make announcements about events scheduled after April 18 upon careful monitoring of this developing situation.

We will soon announce refund procedures for the affected events. Programs like the NJPW Together Project will continue to see wrestlers and staff come together to bring the best possible content to fans while we eagerly await the opportunity to entertain live crowds once more.

Wrestling Dontaku 2020 is scheduled to take place in Fukuoka over two nights on Sunday, May 3 and Monday, May 4.
