Domestic travel in Japan, firstly inside the prefecture, will be allowed on June 19 2020

As the Japanese government lifted the state of emergency declaration related to COVID-19 nationwide on May 25 2020, it has decided to ease the voluntary stay-home ban gradually by three weeks approximately, checking the infection situation and evaluating infection risks. 

According to the basic policy, the government encouraged people to avoid non-essential travel and travel between prefectures by the end of May and travel to the particular warning prefectures of Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba and Hokkaido by June 18 2020. 

After June 19, domestic travel nationwide will be allowed, but it depends upon the infection situation of the time. 

The government has budgeted 1,680 billion JPY for ‘GO TO Campaign’ to boost tourism in Japan, in which ‘GO TO TRAVEL’ benefits a traveler with a coupon equivalent to half of a product price or up to 20,000 JPY a night through travel agents.
