For the latest information about individual facilities, please also check their official websites and SNSs.
Public transportation systems are also taking measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Major railroads are recommending that people avoid rush hour and crowded train cars. Major airlines are also taking measures such as encouraging people to keep the amount of luggage they carry to a minimum. Airports are also taking various prophylactic measures, such as limiting the number of available seats.
If traveling before COVID-19 has settled down, we’re all encouraged to follow the “new travel etiquette” to decrease the risk of infection.
The Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) is actively requesting all locations to implement measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We have a pictogram chart to show the measures taken by various tourist locations.
