Tripple vaccinated travelers from Australia, Thailand, Singapore, and the United States will be allowed into Japan which will be in groups of no more than 4 travelers and planned with travel agencies accompanied by tour conductors on fixed schedules and itineraries.

Individual travelers remain restricted from visiting until a resumption at an as of yet undetermined date. It was not announced how the visitors would be selected from those wanting to enter Japan.
