May 26 – Prime Minister Kishida announced tourists will be accepted starting on June 10. He went on to say that tourists on package tours with accompanying guides will be allowed to enter. There are about 100 countries and territories with low case counts that will not have to test upon arrival in Japan and will not have to quarantine. These countries include America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, and western European countries. We will be working on getting clarifications on this announcement and will post any updates we feel appropriate.
There have been no changes to the entry restrictions in the last week.
The number of people allowed to enter Japan on a daily basis will be doubled from a maximum of 10,000 to a maximum of 20,000 people per day beginning on June 1.
Everyone except for tourists is allowed to enter.
In a recent survey, the percentage of the Japanese population that wants to ease border restrictions and allow tourists is now 51%. The percentage who don’t want to ease border restrictions is 41%.
