In this age of Covid-19 coronavirus, the world isn’t exactly our oyster. Although Japan’s sweeping entry ban is still in place, those of us already here are being encouraged to explore our own backyard and see everything the country has to offer.
To promote domestic travel and to help boost local businesses, the Japanese government has set up the Go to Travel campaign, which provides subsidies of up to 50 percent on your costs for transportation, hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions and shopping, all within Japan.
Tokyo was readded to the campaign on October 1, so those travelling to and from Tokyo are now eligible for the discounts.
Most of the information on the Go to Travel campaign is in Japanese, so we’ve compiled all the key details on this remarkable travel deal.
These details are subject to change – this is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
