Japan-based inbound tourism media site “tsunagu Japan” has launched the “Traveling Safely in Japan” page! ~Now accepting applications from businesses nationwide to list their COVID-19 infection prevention measures on the page~
D2C X Inc. (Location: Chuo-ku, Tokyo; Representative Director: Ryo Hagiwara; hereafter “D2C X”), the company behind Japan-based inbound tourism media site “tsunagu Japan,” has launched its special “Traveling Safely in Japan” page, which focuses on providing safety and security information in regards to the tourism situation during and after COVID-19.
Japan’s tourism industry has been severely affected by the worldwide spread of COVID-19. However, when the situation inevitably ends, there is no doubt that the demand for tourism will return. The “Traveling Safely in Japan” is our way of encouraging tourists from across the world to make Japan their first international destination when they are able to travel again. It contains all the crucial information that we believe they would want to know before making such a trip.
From here on, travelers will no longer only be concerned with visiting beautiful places. They will also check to see if they can avoid the 3 C’s (closed spaces, crowds, and close contact) while traveling and if a hygienic environment is being maintained on a day-to-day basis. Attention to safety and security will become an increasingly important factor in regards to travel.
The recently launched “Traveling Safely in Japan” page is currently an incomplete service. We plan to gather information about safety and security measures from local tourist spots, lodgings, restaurants, public institutions, amusement facilities, and other tourism-related businesses across the country and share it with the world.
We are looking for business owners willing to share their infection prevention measures in preparation for the rebound in tourism. D2C X will take the information received and translate it into multiple languages free of charge, as well as display it on the “Traveling Safely in Japan” page for an indefinite amount of time. Please see below for the full details.
