Japan’s state of emergency has been lifted and Tokyo has begun stage one of its recovery plan, which includes allowing museums to reopen. Of course, our museum visits will be slightly different from now on. A number of new rules and safety measures have been implemented to limit the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus.
