Preparing Japan for tourists from overseas

Japan is preparing for the return of foreign tourists as border control to curb the spread of coronavirus infection is gradually relaxed. Yusuke Otomo, who runs a kimono rental shop for the first time in a long time, can’t control his excitement. Expectations are rising for such companies targeting foreign tourists, who counted more than 30 million people annually before the pandemic. So far, a limited number of foreign tourists are only allowed on group tours. Visas are only granted to certain countries that are considered to have the least health risk, such as Thailand and the United States, so you can enter without quarantine. (June 28)
