Japan tourist board to hold webinar as entry rules set to ease

The Japan National Tourism Organisation (JNTO) will host a travel trade training webinar next week as the country is preparing to reopen its borders to international visitors.

The country will relax some of its strict Covid-19 border controls next month by raising the daily cap on entrants and cutting the quarantine period from seven days to three.

InsideJapan, part of the Inside Travel Group, expects “an incremental easing” of restrictions over the coming months and “some international travel from the early summer onwards.”

Travel agents, operators and others in the UK travel trade can join the JNTO webinar, which starts at 9am next Wednesday (February 23).

The online event will highlight the attractions of the capital Tokyo, and the Kumano Kodo, a World Heritage trail, described as one of the world’s most sacred pilgrimages.

Speakers will be Brad Towle, international tourism promotion and development director at Tanabe City Kumano Tourism Bureau, and Yoko Takechi, the Tokyo Tourism representative at the Tokyo Convention & Visitors Bureau.
