Japan Opening to Tourists for the First Time in 2 Years!
Beginning from June 10th, Japan will finally allow tourists into Japan again, after about 2 years. There is a catch, though, however: for now this is only for packaged tours, so you must have a guide and a fixed tour with a fixed schedule in order to be allowed in (and this is on top of the usual COVID-19 checks including having proof of a negative Covid test as well as proof of 3 vaccinations). You also must apply for a visa in advance. Packaged tours is the first stage, but gradually Japan will allow more and more tourists in in various stages, so stay tuned for more updates.
