Japan is “incredibly pleased to finally welcome back individual travellers,” says JNTO

TORONTO — The JNTO says it looks forward to welcoming individual inbound travellers back to Japan with the long-awaited lifting of entry restrictions.

As reported last week, Japan will reopen to individual travellers starting Oct.11, 2022.

The JNTO says the resumption of individual travel to Japan, the waiving of visa requirements, and the elimination of the daily arrival cap will allow international visitors to enjoy Japan in more ways than has been possible in the past two-and-a-half years.

JNTO President SEINO Satoshi issued the following statement …

“The Japanese government has at last announced the resumption of individual travel for tourism purposes, the waiving of visa restrictions, and the elimination of the daily arrival cap. I am incredibly pleased to finally welcome back individual travellers after coping with the pandemic during a wait of two-and-a-half years.

“In response to the announcement, JNTO will be doing everything we can to provide you with the latest information on coming to Japan so that many tourists can visit and journey throughout our country.“So you can do more than take in Japan’s captivating culture, history, nature, and cuisine, we are also working hard on projects for sustainable tourism, adventure travel, and luxury travel. Japan is a highly attractive country not only for tourism, but also for international conferences and incentive travel. With the relaxed travel measures, Japan is fully prepared to host these events.

“Along with revelling in the many ways to take in the allures across Japan, now is a time when international visitors can take advantage of shopping opportunities. Japan has been busy over the past two-and-a-half years with preparations to welcome back everyone. Come see the new Japan. We eagerly await your arrival!”
