Even though summer vacation is almost over, the Go to Travel campaign is still rolling on. The domestic travel promotion, which will include travel to and from Tokyo from October 1, is offering discounts of up to 50 percent to travel around Japan, in the hopes of boosting tourism to areas that have been badly affected by the lack of tourists during the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Now, making those hotel reservations will be much easier. Our hotel reservation affiliate partner Booking.com has enrolled in the Go to Travel campaign, so you can get a sweet 35 percent discount (up to a maximum of ¥14,000 off) on the total room price when you book online. What's more, you can search for these deals in English.
To search for an eligible hotel, just look for the orange 'Go to Travel' flag on the corner of the hotel listing. For example: if you want to visit Osaka for the delicious street food, the Go to Travel campaign will give you a steep discount on your room. We found a two-person three-night stay that only costs ¥17,160, discounted from ¥33,000 (note that rates may differ depending on date and availability). The best part is, on top of the hotel discount, you'll also receive vouchers to use at local restaurants and shops starting October 1. Quite a deal, right?
The online promotion is expected to last until the Go to Travel campaign finishes on January 31 2021. For more details, see the terms and conditions on Booking.com here.
