[Updated: January 7th, 2021]
We are currently closing our "Go To Travel" application form as the resumption of the campaign, which was scheduled to resume on January 12th, has been suspended due to a state of emergency issued by the Japanese Government on January 7th.
We will reopen the form once the Go To Travel campaign is resumed or any updated schedule is confirmed.
[Updated: December 15th, 2020]
The Japanese government announced on December 14th that the Go To Travel campaign will be suspended nationwide from December 28th to January 11th, in addition to the suspension of the campaign previously started in Sapporo, Osaka, Nagoya, and Tokyo.
We are now open for reservations for the trip departing after January 12th, 2021.
To promote domestic travel and to help encourage local businesses in Japan, the Japanese government has launched the "Go To Travel Campaign" from July 2020.
The campaign provides subsidies of up to 50% on your costs for transportation, hotels and shopping on domestic travels.
(Please refer to the bottom of this page for the details of this campaign)
Due to the increase of COVID cases in the metropolitan area, Tokyo had been excluded from the campaign, but the Japanese government has recently announced that the travel to/from Tokyo will be added to this campaign starting from October.
Tokyo residents, including non-Japanese residents, and those travelling to/from Tokyo, again, including those who are non-Japanese, will be eligible to receive the discounts starting from October 2020 (applies to a travel that starts from October 1st).
