Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
On May 25, the Japanese government lifted the state of emergency covering Greater Tokyo and Hokkaido. The ease in restrictions is a relief for many of us who are getting restless self-isolating at home. But even as Tokyo begins to reopen, it’s important to keep practising social distancing and personal hygience – and adhere to the city’s current safety precautions. Here’s how to stay safe when going out in the coming weeks.
Please note, Tokyo is going through a transitional period where circumstances are shifting frequently. A lot of things are subject to change, but we aim to keep you updated with the coronavirus situation here in Tokyo through these live updates.
