Tourism to Resume in Japan
After more than two years of the Japanese borders being closed to tourists, and then reopening only for package holidays, the borders are finally opening to regular tourists without the need for additional documents.
The government will also relaunch a nationwide travel discount program, which was halted due to the spread of COVID-19 infections.
Kishida said that “we also plan to launch a campaign to offer domestic travel discounts and event discounts to residents of Japan and hope that many citizens will take advantage of the offer to support the hotel, travel and entertainment sectors that have suffered enormous blows during the pandemic.”
The past few weeks, Japan is gradually reopening its borders in stages. Now, the country is ready to welcome back foreign tourists.
