Japan will increase the daily limit for tourists from 20,000 to 50,000 people per day from September 7, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said on Wednesday.
“To participate in international exchanges and take advantage of the low exchange rate of the yen, the restrictions on entry will be relaxed from 7 September and the entry limit will be increased to 50,000 people per day. The option of unaccompanied tour packages is open to all countries Kishida said while he was in a press conference.
On June 10, Japan reopened its borders to tourist groups after more than two years of restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The measure applies only to small organized tour groups from 98 countries, which Tokyo considers safer in terms of the epidemiological situation, including China, Russia, the United States, South Korea and almost all European countries. Vaccination cards and mandatory quarantine are not required upon entry.
