Nikkei reported on Tuesday that Keidanren Chairman Tokura said during a regular press conference on Monday that he wants the GOJ to substantially increase the number of foreign visitors allowed to enter Japan beyond 5,000 per day. The paper noted that the GOJ will increase the number of foreign visitors to Japan from 3,500 to 5,000 per day starting in March. Tokura reportedly said: “Instead of saying 5,000, I want the government to greatly increase the number.” Tokura also reportedly mentioned that many other nations have already eased their entry restrictions and said: “Case numbers around the world have peaked. It is becoming less meaningful to maintain strict national isolation.”
