Japanese border reopening, FANUC, YUM China, A2 Milk, KSK, YAVB podcast
Starting from June, Japan’s borders will open up to foreign tour groups from 98 countries. Quarantining will no longer be required for entry. Visa applications can be submitted from 10 June, but it will take a few weeks before the first tourists arrive. The Japanese yen has depreciated, making travel to Japan affordable for foreigners.
But don’t expect a rapid recovery. The number of arrivals to Japan will be capped at 20,000 per day vs 100,000+ before the pandemic.
