  According to the report, the Japanese government accepts visitors to Japan within the daily limit of 20,000 people.

Regardless of whether they are vaccinated against the new crown, tourists are exempted from testing and home isolation upon entry.

  However, the report pointed out that due to the need for visas and other procedures, the actual entry of tourists will take about a month at the shortest.

  Japan's Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism released the guidelines for countermeasures against the new crown epidemic for the resumption of admission of tourists to Japan on the 7th.

Travel agencies will require tourists to wear masks and sanitize, and to join overseas travel insurance including medical expenses.
