The Government of Japan announced that it will be welcoming international travellers through pre-packaged tours back into the country as of 10JUN, reported the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) in a press release.

“I wholeheartedly welcome the accelerated pace at which the international community is preparing for the recovery of travel for tourism purposes. The government has announced a policy on Japan initiating action to join that effort. I take this as a first step toward the recovery of inbound tourism to Japan,” said JNTO President Seino Satoshi.

According to the JNTO, the organization is working with local governments and DMOs in Japan, as well as domestic and foreign travel agencies, airlines, and other organizations, to prepare for the resumption of inbound travel. In anticipation of major international events, such as the UNWTO World Forum on Gastronomy Tourism in DEC 2022, the Adventure Travel World Summit (ATWS) in 2023, and Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, the tourism organization hopes to increase their efforts to release further information on travel to Japan.

Additionally, the JNTO announced plans to introduce new promotions for travel to the country as it reopens.

The JNTO says its web site is receiving “continuous updates” with information on new forms of inbound tourism to Japan, including luxury travel, sustainable tourism, and adventure travel.

“Despite the pandemic, we have worked with people in inbound tourism to prepare for its recovery. We will welcome the return of international tourists to Japan as the first step in the recovery of inbound tourism,” said Satoshi.
