Japan sees few visitors a week after cautious border reopening


After more than two years, one of the world’s most popular travel destinations has reopened its doors to tourists. Yet few, if any, came.

No exhausted but exuberant travelers following a flag-carrying tour guide were spotted at Tokyo’s Haneda Airport on June 10, when Japan officially reopened its borders and doubled the daily entry limit to 20,000 visitors. Japan’s National Tourism Organization said it had no data on tour groups in the week since, and some tour operators have yet to start tours.
