What is the “National Travel Discount” program？
The “National Travel Discount” is a government program designed to stimulate tourism demand by offering discounts on transportation and accommodations throughout Japan.
The program has expanded from the previous “Prefectural Travel Discount” campaign to include all residents of Japan, regardless of their home prefecture. This includes long-term foreign nationals living in Japan with a properly registered home address.
Local vouchers of up to ¥2,000 per person per day are available for food expenses on weekdays, and vouchers of ¥1,000 per person per day available for food expenses on weekends.
To be eligible for the discount, travelers need to either be vaccinated with three shots or submit a negative PCR test. However, some prefectures may have different requirements for the number of shots needed.
Eligible Period: January 10th ~ March 31st, 2023
