From Paolo from Tokyo.
Japan Government is paying everyone in Japan to travel during the pandemic. Japan is not only encouraging its residents to travel, but actually paying them to travel Japan and vacation. Tokyo residents who were excluded the last couple months will be included from October 1st. I’m at Tokyo Japan’s Haneda Airport to better explain the situation. The Japanese government launched earlier this July a Go To Travel Campaign worth 1.35 trillion Japanese Yen, about 12.7 Billion Dollars, to stimulate domestic tourism, because people stopped traveling this year because of the pandemic. Basically this government sponsored campaign, offers anyone living in Japan up to 50% off their travel including hotel and transportation such as flights and trains all included as long the Japan resident books through one of several specified travel agencies. The Go To Travel campaign also includes includes foreigner residents but not Japan tourists. Each person can get up to a 20,000 yen discount per night, which is about 190 US dollars, for an unlimited amount of nights. There’s not even a limit on how many times you can use it. And Basically this campaign goes until the funds run out, which is expected to be in early 2021. Obviously there are some restrictions, but you can also book day trips and hotels on your own, but at lower subsidy rate. Nonetheless, the government is really giving people financial incentive to travel during this time. This Go To Travel campaign is the first of a larger 4 part campaign, and will be followed by a Go To Eat Campaign, Go To Event Campaign and Go To Shopping Street Campaign. As of making this video travel into Japan by foreign tourists is still prohibited.
