 Thursday, May 26, 2022 


Seven people from the United States came to Japan on Tuesday, which is part of the first limited test tours in Japan government’s premeditated gradual reopening for all inbound tourists from June.

Among these seven tourists, six are from Hawaii and one from Los Angeles. All of them landed at Narita airport outside Tokyo. They will take part in tours that have coronavirus countermeasures in place.

Inbound tourist numbers in Japan witnessed record lows ever since the Japan government temporarily enforced pandemic border restraints in December 2020. The Japan Business Federation, which is a business lobby known as Keidanren, has urged for “realistic discussions” about reopening.

The seven tourists will be subject to two itineraries. One is inclusive of Tochigi Prefecture’s Nikko Toshogutemple and Zenkoji temple in Nagano Prefecture, and the itinerary is inclusive ofIwate Prefecture’s Hanamakionsen hot spring resort along with theMogami River in Yamagata Prefecture.

Individuals from the United States, Australia, Thailand and Singapore are qualified for these test tours, which is inclusive of about 50 people, including travel agency officials. The visitors would be dividedinto 15 groups for going to places of interest in 12 prefectures.

For adhering to infection avoidancerules, the groups will accommodate around four people at the maximum, and the participants will need to wear masks while visiting tourist spots or using transportation services.
