By Nick Pidcock — A lot of people think that travelling to Japan is something they can do by plane, train or boat.
You might think you’re doing the right thing by getting to Japan, but if you’re a foreigner or a Japanese-American, you can be left out of the loop.
The following are some of the restrictions that are in place around the country and are enforced at the moment.
If you’re an expat and plan to visit Japan on a tourist visa, you should be able to book a trip in advance.
If you’re from the US, you’ll need to make a booking and submit it to a customs office.
They can only approve or deny a visa if the person who booked it is from Japan.
This is also true if you plan to spend more than 30 days in Japan.
The country has strict rules about travel for foreigners, but you can still go on a short break to relax in some of its charming places.
The rules are:You’re not allowed to rent a car or a van from a Japanese tour operator.
You can only book one bus ticket per person per day.
You are allowed to use a private bus for 30 days, but only during business hours, not during holiday periods.
If there’s a big parade, there will be an airport in front of the main airport and it will close at 12pm.
