Japan travel and coronavirus (COVID-19)

Latest information (updated August 2021): When will Japan open for tourists? Japan is currently completely closed for tourism but we can already start to dream. Here is Japan’s tentative post-COVID opening schedule (source: Japan Association of Travel Agents)

September 2021

Half of all Japanese vaccinated || Increasing number of visitors allowed into Japan (unfortunately not tourists yet) || All visitors required to quarantine for 14 days || Bilateral discussions with other countries to restore international travel

October ~ November 2021

Up to 80% of Japanese vaccinated || Start to relax or remove the 14-day quarantine || International tourism not allowed yet

December 2021

Herd immunity reached || International travel gradually begins again (hurray 🎉)

Which date will Japan open?

We follow all travel industry and government announcements (in English and Japanese) and will share more details as soon as they become available. Be the first to know with our free newsletter signup. Our best guess is that you should prepare to visit Japan from February 2022 and onwards. This means you can spend Chinese New Year (CNY) in Japan with your family. In March 2022 treat yourself to the trip of a lifetime with our Cherry Blossom Tour.

Will there be any special procedures or tests required to enter Japan?

There have been no official announcements yet. The Japanese government is currently discussing with other countries the use of vaccination passports. Our best guess is that only vaccinated tourists will be allowed to visit Japan freely. Non-vaccinated visitors are likely to require an enforced 14-day hotel quarantine and PCR testing.

Follow us on Facebook to be the first to know when details are released.

We are currently accepting bookings for private customised family trips from January next year (2022). Our first group tour (Foodie Tour) starts in February 2022. Due to the uncertain situation we are accepting bookings on all our group tours without any deposit required. If you decide to cancel later there will be nothing for you to pay.

We know you’re passionate to visit Japan and we can’t wait to welcome you here ♥
