The positive news, from official sources, about relaxing travel restrictions into Japan has everybody feeling that a return to normality is just around the corner. The slight change in entry requirements issued at the beginning of September are still a way off the visa waiver and unrestricted access everybody is waiting for. However, we are confident that upcoming announcements will pave the way for welcoming tourists again this winter.
