Asahi reported that the government considers allowing small groups of tourists from Asian countries into Japan.

They have to
  • travel on a chartered vehicle, such as a bus
  • move separately from other groups of foreign tourists
  • present certificates showing that they tested negative for the coronavirus
  • purchase travel medical insurance before their arrival
  • disclose their activity plans for their stay
  • separate themselves from Japanese travellers at a hotel or a tourist destination
  • use a contract-tracing app to confirm if they were exposed to anyone infected
  • use the LINE app to report their health condition
