Can I Travel to Japan Now?
The government has announced strict entry restrictions that will be reassessed at the end of February. Currently, only Japanese citizens and foreign residents are allowed to enter Japan. No new visas are currently being issued.
International tourists are not allowed to enter Japan. Unless you are a Japanese citizen or a resident of Japan, you cannot enter the country.
Vaccination Rate in Japan
Over 78% of the population is fully vaccinated.
Will I Have to Be Vaccinated to Enter Japan?
There hasn’t been an official announcement yet, but we anticipate any opening to international tourism will involve showing proof of vaccination.
With over 78% of the population vaccinated, Japan has recently placed a large emphasis on vaccination cards for domestic travel. Many restaurants, hotels, and events in Japan are now requiring proof of vaccination.
Of all the G7 countries, Japan has the highest number of fully-vaccinated residents.

Will I Have to Wear a Mask?
The people in Japan have been wearing masks long before the pandemic. It is currently recommended that everyone wear a face mask, and it is possible that this will continue well into the future.
What Happens if my Tour is Canceled?
If the borders remain closed and we have to cancel your tour, then you will have the option to transfer your travel dates or receive a full refund.
As always, we strongly recommend that you get travel insurance in case you need to cancel for personal reasons.
