Japan Tourism Agency adds support packages for local tourism businesses in accordance with the third emergency declaration

Japan Tourism Agency has decided to add two new support steps in the local tourism business support package in accordance with declaration of a state of emergency to Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Hyogo.

The first step is to support financially to accommodations in all prefectures for enhancement of COVID-19 infection prevention measures. 

The second step is to extend a financial support term for prefecture-based travel promotion campaigns in the Infection Stage 2 or below prefectures from May 31 originally to December 31 this year. 

For the Infection Stage 3 or above prefectures currently, including Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Hyogo, financial supports for travel promotion campaigns will be provided in the future when the Infection Stage lowers to 2 or below.
