Travel agencies eye discounts for those vaccinated for COVID-19

Travel agencies in Japan are offering special packages catering to consumers who have been vaccinated against COVID-19.The struggling tourism industry sees a silver lining in the vaccination program against the novel coronavirus as it expects the program to inspire more people not only to get jabs but also to go on trips.The Japan Travel and Tourism Association in June released an emergency proposal that urged acceleration of vaccinations and the adoption of COVID-19 “passports” to confirm vaccinations.The statement argued that “promoting trips taking advantage of inoculation certificates and other measures will lead to expanded exchanges between people.”Leading tourist agent Club Tourism International Inc. is considering a new tour intended specially for inoculated individuals that aims to allow participants to feel safe while traveling, which it would accept reservations for by the end of August at the earliest.As the majority of people who have been vaccinated to date are elderly, the ratio of senior citizens against the total joining tours is about 10 percent more than usual, leading travel firms to prepare packages to match the trend.A Club Tourism representative said the company hopes the special tours “will stimulate consumers’ desire for traveling.” Nippon Hotel Co., an East Japan Railway Co. group company, is staging a campaign targeting people who have been inoculated against COVID-19.Tourists who stay and dine in 34 accommodation facilities from four Nippon Hotel brands through the end of September can receive hotel discount tickets valued from 500 yen ($4.50) to 3,000 yen.To apply for the campaign, customers must show their vaccination certificates.“We expect our endeavor will encourage more people to get vaccinated,” said a Nippon Hotel representative. “We also anticipate the campaign will offer new value so tourists will choose our hotels over other lodging facilities.”Prince Hotels Inc., a Seibu Holdings Inc. affiliate, released a new package on July 2 in which vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals can stay together after taking a free polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.The company sends PCR test kits to the homes of customers who book hotels covered under the program, who get their test results before their stays.“We'd like people, including those who couldn't see each other for an entire year, to make family and other trips together,” a Prince Hotels representative said. For those who are planning to travel overseas, local governments will start accepting applications from July 26 for COVID-19 "vaccine passports" that certify holders have been inoculated against the virus.

Sustainable Travel in Japan

Sustainable travel needn’t involve camping under the stars or biking your way around the country. By supporting local businesses and respecting the environment and local culture, travelling responsibly is easy. two men hold up bowls of strawberriesWWOOFing is a way to connect with the local communityJapan’s tourism industry is experiencing something of a boom, with the number of travellers leaping from around 8 million in 2012 to 31 million in 2018. This has sparked concern among locals about the impact of tourism, but has also motivated companies to develop opportunities for green tourism across the country, making it easier than ever to travel sustainably. A simple way to reduce your carbon footprint is to take the train rather than taking domestic flights. With arguably the best rail network in the world, there’s no better country to explore by train than Japan. The shinkansen makes it quick and easy to get to far-flung places and an expansive regional network can get you to rural locations. A JR Pass makes train travel within Japan an affordable option, too.  

Green eating

Sustainable food is an area where Japan really shines. Seasonal eating is a big part of the culture, and traditional restaurants tend to locally source as many ingredients as possible. Additionally, vegan and vegetarian food are becoming increasingly popular in Japan’s major cities. Though it’s still not exactly mainstream, with a little research you can find restaurants that serve plant-based meals. A group of people eat simple food as the sun setsBy WWOOFing, you'll be offered free meals and accommodation in exchange for helping your hosts

Eco-friendly stays

To get well and truly off the tourist trail, try WWOOFing. In exchange for food and a place to stay, you help your host with anything from organic farming, restoring traditional homes or running an environmental center. Not only do you give something back, but you get to make meaningful connections with the local community too. For sustainable living inspiration, visit Kamikatsu in Tokushima. This pretty town, surrounded by mountains and rice paddies, has made headlines by becoming practically zero-waste. Locals go to admirable lengths to avoid incinerating waste, separating their trash into 34 categories. They also leave clothes and household items they no longer need at an exchange, called a “kurukuru” in the town, so others can pick up those items for free. Visitors to the town are invited to come and take goods, too. A wooden and glass building surrounded by mountains and natureRise & Win brewery takes the reduce. reuse, recycle ethos to the next levelAnother kurukuru shop in the town sells upcycled items, such as clothes and bags, made from unwanted clothes and other textiles. Even the town’s brewery, Rise & Win, follows the reduce, reuse, recycle mantra. They use yuzu peel that would otherwise be thrown away to flavor craft beer and reuse the grain to make granola. Additionally, all the bottles used are returnable. Its very cool-looking building is made from recycled materials and won the WAN (World Architecture News) Sustainable Buildings Award in 2016. If you can’t get to Kamikatsu, get a feel for the brewery at its Tokyo-based taproom, instead. Fabric beads wrapped around a piece of coralI Was A Kimono make pretty jewellery from discarded traditional clothing

Sustainable souvenirs

One of the easiest ways you can support local businesses is to shop for local produce when buying souvenirs. Support local artisans by buying their arts and crafts, or local farmers by purchasing jams and sauces. A man sitting down wearing a blue shirt and a beige bagWaste items are reworked into fashionable pieces by Japanese brand, ModecoFor something a little more unusual, check out upcycling brands like Modeco which take waste materials and turn them into beautiful stationery, clothes and accessories. For something really special try I Was A Kimono, an online store that gives new life to old kimono, reworking the fabric into handcrafted accessories and other decorative items.With a little research, it’s easy to turn your holiday to Japan into a sustainable one.

Travel to Japan during Covid-19: What you need to know before you go

CNN staff • Updated 10th July 2021
Japan offers a heady mix of the cutting edge and deeply traditional
Editor's Note — Coronavirus cases remain high across the globe. Health officials caution that travel increases your chances of getting and spreading the virus.
Staying home is the best way to stem transmission. Below is information on what to know if you still plan to travel, last updated on July 8.
(CNN) — If you're planning to travel to Japan, here's what you'll need to know and expect if you want to visit during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The basics

Japan was lauded for containing the virus during the first wave but has since seen a surge in cases, with a major spike in November and December 2020.
Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga announced on February 9 that all foreign nationals would be barred from entering the country, but did not specify a start date
or give details about how this would be implemented. The Tokyo Olympics are still scheduled to take place in July despite protests.
Although all foreign nationals have been barred from attending the Olympics in summer 2021 and are mostly unable to enter the country, Japanese authorities
announced that they are considering testing any foreigner entering the country for the newer coronavirus variants.
The upcoming Olympic Games have increased pressure on authorities to keep the pandemic under control.
Tokyo and Okinawa will be under a state of emergency until August 11, which covers the entire duration of the Games.
Three of the prefectures bordering Tokyo -- Chiba, Kanagawa and Saitama -- will also remain under a semi-state of emergency during this period.
Olympic organizers have agreed to hold events without spectators.

What's on offer

A heady mix of the cutting edge and deeply traditional, Japan remains a major draw for travelers from all over the globe. Whether participating in a traditional
tea ceremony in Kyoto, scouring Tokyo's Akihabara district for tech bargains or soaking in a hot onsen in the forests of Tohoku, this is a country that leaves its
mark on all who visit.

Who can go

Japan has some of the most stringent travel restrictions in the world, with 152 countries on its prohibited list.
Visitors from Australia, Brunei, China (including Hong Kong and Macau), New Zealand, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam may enter the country,
although those traveling from China and South Korea can only arrive into the country via Tokyo Narita airport. Additionally, those traveling for study,
work or to join family (subject to visa requirements) may enter. That said, there are many exceptions and the rules change constantly. Consult MOFA for the latest information.
Prime Minister Suga announced on January 14 that the borders would close to all foreign nationals, although there were no specifics on beginning and ending dates.
He also did not specify whether this would apply to foreign citizens with Japanese residency.
On May 24, the US State Department issued a travel warning against its citizens visiting Japan. It was a Level 4 warning, the highest on the scale.
It has since been dropped to a "Level 3: Reconsider Travel."

What are the restrictions?

Travelers from permitted destinations must undertake a 14-day quarantine, although it is possible to request a PCR test on arrival. A negative result allows you to finish quarantine.
Those traveling under Japan's revised business travel rules will need to provide proof of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of departure, signed and stamped by the laboratory where it was taken. While they will not need to self-isolate, they will need to provide details of their movements for the following two weeks and not use public transport.

What's the Covid situation?

After low infection rates in the first wave, Japan has seen a sharp increase in cases, which have steadily increased since a state of emergency was lifted in March. On June 14, the country marked a total of 936 cases -- the first time the national number had fallen below 1,000 new cases since March. The government's efforts to speed up vaccinations has improved significantly, with one million jabs per day the week of June 22.
As of July 8, Japan had reported roughly 809,909 confirmed cases of the virus and 14,834 deaths.
The vaccine rollout has been slow compared with others in Asia because of a shortage of medical professionals and a lack of syringes.
To boost vaccine numbers ahead of the Olympics, the Japanese government has rolled out some workplace vaccination programs and recruited dentists,
retired doctors and others in the medical field to assist with giving them out.
The Health Ministry formally approved two Covid-19 vaccines (Moderna and AstraZeneca) on May 21. Both are approved for anyone 18 and older.
Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato confirmed to local media that his team is exploring options for "vaccine passports." Business travelers would be prioritized for these at first.

Daily reported Covid-19 cases

What can visitors expect?

While much of Japan remains open for business, cities are far quieter than usual and the government has the right to request the closure of businesses in areas of high transmission.
Masks must be worn in public.
