Japan reopened to UK tourists on a limited basis from last Friday (10 June).
The Japanese Tourism Agency (JTA) has confirmed that tourists from 98 countries including the UK are now allowed to enter Japan on fully escorted group tours with set itineraries run by licensed Japanese tour operators. It ends a ban that has lasted nearly three years.
There will be no quarantine or testing required in Japan, but all travellers will need to produce proof of a negative PCR test 72 hours prior to departure and adequate Covid-19 medical insurance.
