However, under an initiative that will come into effect with couple of months. Japan will provide subsidies to its tourists in an effort to revive its tourism industry.
“The Go To Travel” initiative will subsidise holidays by up to ¥20,000 or £152 a day in the form of steep discounts and vouchers. It can be used at local shops and restaurants, according to Kyodo news agency.
