Japan’s PM hints at June reopening

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has been in London to strike a defence deal between Japan and the UK. But yesterday the PM dropped a big hint about when his country would FINALLY be reopening to international tourists.



“We have now eased border control measures significantly, with the next easing taking place in June, when Japan will introduce a smoother entry process similar to that of other G7 members,” an official English version provided by the Prime Minister’s Office read.


Japan travel specialists, InsideJapan (part of Inside Travel Group) have applauded Kishida’s announcement.


“This is something we have waited over two years for and something that can’t come soon enough,” said the group’s Co-founder, Simon King.


“Although details and dates are yet to be confirmed, it would seem that Japan is set to open for tourism again in June. We have thousands of customers that cannot wait to travel, and inquiries are verging on pre-pandemic levels. This is the news we have all been waiting for,” King continued.


InsideJapan will be launching their new digital brochure in the coming weeks in anticipation of the full announcement.
