This project supports half of the cost of overnight stays and day trips for domestic travel. Of the support amount, (1) 70% will be given as a discount on travel fees, and (2) 30% will be given as regional coupons that can be used at travel destinations. The upper limit is 20,000 yen per person per night (10,000 yen for day trips), and there is no limit on the number of consecutive stays or the number of times it can be used.
The Japan Tourism Agency hopes to start the project after the 22nd of this month, before the four-day holiday. For those who have already booked travel after the 22nd, the discount will be refunded if an application is submitted to the secretariat after the trip.[I want to read together]
