When Japan’s travel restriction will be lifted or loosened?
We don’t know. It depends on the combination of Japan’s progress of booster shot and new COVID cases. As of March 7th, priority preventative measures (quasi-emergency status) are in force in 18 prefectures including Tokyo until March 21st.

Has the government started talking about lifting the restrictions?
Yes or No. From March 1st, Japan has raised the limit on daily entrants to Japan from 3,500 to 5000 people a day, and on March 3rd, Prime Minister Kishida announced the govermnet plan to raise the limit on daily entrants to Japan from 5,000 to 7,000, which is to be implemented from March 14th. However, this is applicable only to foreign business travelers and students with pre-approval basis (though the strict requirements and lengthy process prevented many companies and schools from applying), which means that foreign tourists are still banned to enter Japan. It is considered that the government will carefully monitor the current situation and gradually lift such restrictions.

What are the requirements for those can enter Japan now?
The quarantine period is 7 days, however, if the test is negative on the third day, passenger may end quarantine.
If passenger stays last 14 days in Omicron variant area, passenger must stay 3 days in designated quarantine facility.

However, for those who have received the third shot of vaccine are eligible for the following relaxation measures. 
(1) If passenger stayed in Omicron vaviant area in last 14days,
* passenger may quarantine at home or any place you choose.
* passenger may use public transportation to quarantine place within 24 hours after the Covid-19 test upon entry.

(2) If passenger is flying into Japan from other than Omicron variant area,
* No need for quarantine.
