    Sadly no, tourists can not visit Japan right now :(

    They are easing the entry for students or business travelers right now, so if everything goes well, maybe tourists would be the next!

    I always take a look on this article, since they updated whenever there is news, to stay up to date about the COVID situation in Japan and the travel restrictions:

    Not currently. For now, only those who are Japanese citizens and those holding permanent resident status WITH re-entry permits are allowed into Japan. And some of those people still have to go through quarantine.

    Currently, no. But  Japan has said it will be open for the 2020 Olympics delayed til summer, 2021, virus be damned.

    They may open sooner, but there will be some obstacles for you to climb over to be able to go.

    No, not now, but they are accepting some people who will be staying three months or longer on long term visas. https://www.skyscanner.com/travel-restrictions/jap...

  • How do you think about the answers? You can sign in to vote the answer.
  • Not right now, if you are coming from one of the countries where covid is still a big issue (namely, most of the developped countries...).

    However, this is probably going to change soon, cause they will be forced to let people in for the Olympics. 

    But you will have to take a 14 days quarantine or so.

    For what really should be obvious reasons - no.

    You cannot enter Japan for sightseeing purposes. The ban may be lifted in April next year.
