Posted in: Japan holds 1st tourism expo in 2 years to aid virus-hit industry See in context

so many ignorant reader comments. you do know that if you travel to a different prefecture within a country, you can still be considered a tourist right

Read the MOFA website, you have to be part of a tour group. You can't wonder around all Japan. You get bused to a location have 2 hours to do whatever you want (with rules) then have to get back on your bus and go back to your hotel. That is the reason for this expo... Please bus your tourists here.

An expo to show tour companies where to send their tourists? This stinks like we want foreigner money. The tour package requirement needs to be removed so people are not limited to X places.
