Following the resumption of acceptance of foreign tourists for the first time in about two years, the appearance of foreign tourists is gradually returning at Narita Airport.

Acceptance of foreign tourists was resumed on the 10th of this month, targeting 98 countries and regions with the lowest risk of infection, such as the United States, South Korea, and China, limited to tour guides.

At Narita Airport, 10 tourists from Hong Kong arrived for the first time after reopening on the 22nd, and airline staff and others welcomed us with a banner saying "Welcome to Japan".

The tour will take you around Hokkaido and Tokyo for 6 nights and 7 days, and you will enjoy it while taking measures against infection.

A woman in her twenties who participated in the tour said, "I decided to go to my favorite Japan when Corona calms down. I plan to eat seafood bowls in Hokkaido and shop in Tokyo, so I want to enjoy Japan for the first time in two years. I was talking.

Tenants entering Narita Airport are looking forward to the return of customers as they resume accepting foreign tourists for the first time in two years.
