“National Travel Discount” (or “National Travel Support”) is a new travel discount program that will be in place starting from October 11th, 2022, together with the “Event Discount” program that is starting on the same day when Japan will fully reopen the border to independent international tourists.
These two programs are applicable nationally and are also applicable to foreign residents in Japan.
National Travel Discount
National Travel Discount offers a 40% discount on travel costs, up to a maximum of 8,000 yen/person per night for a trip using public transportation (train/subway, bus, airplane, etc) and 5,000 yen for a trip other than that (without using public transport or accommodation only), with local coupons that can be used at restaurants, souvenir shops, etc worth 3,000 yen on weekdays and 1,000 yen on weekends.
This means that a person could save travel costs up to a maximum of 11,000 yen and is planned to be valid until the end of December 2022.
Event Discount offers a 20% discount on ticket fees, up to a maximum of 2,000 yen which can be used on amusement parks, music live, movies, sports events, aquariums, museums, etc.
There is still no official announcement yet whether amusement parks such as Tokyo Disney Resort and Universal Studio Japan Osaka will join the program, but many people are expecting the news.
The event is limited to people vaccinated three times or those who present negative PCR tests.
The event discount program is planned to be valid for events held from October 11th to January 31st, 2023.
Popular Travel Destination to Visit
National Travel Discount will allow people to go far and explore new places. The popular destination is expected to be Hokkaido and Okinawa, the two most popular travel destinations in these recent years.
Hokkaido is known for its extremely tasty foods and beautiful nature (especially snow scenery in winter!) and Okinawa is known for its exotic resorts and rich cultures. Two amazing destinations you should visit at least once in the life time.
