Japan will allow unrestricted, visa-free tourism travel beginning October 11th, according to Nikkei.
The announcement comes after months of restrictions on tourism that required travel as part of a group or sponsored by a travel agency. Restrictions on travel in some form have been in place since early 2020. This essentially means that Japan will be back open for tourism for the first time in more than two years.
The news is great for the Oriental Land Company, which is planning a big 40th Anniversary celebration for Tokyo Disneyland and has announced plans to open up a massive expansion at Tokyo DisneySea called Fantasy Springs sometime in 2023 or early 2024.
