Two Cities To Be Excluded From Tourism Campaign

Two cities to be excluded from tourism campaign

Japan's tourism minister says two cities are to be excluded from the government's Go To Travel domestic tourism campaign due to a recent surge in the number of coronavirus cases there.

Akaba Kazuyoshi said on Tuesday that the campaign will be suspended for trips to Sapporo City in the northern prefecture of Hokkaido and Osaka City, western Japan, from Tuesday until December 15.

He said that trips already booked for departure on or before December 1 to either of the two cities will be eligible for discounts under the campaign.

Akaba also said that the government will shoulder cancellation fees.
