Tourism is at an all-time low and it’s especially affecting our friends in Japan that count on it more than other countries. The Coronavirus hit and Japan as an island had to restrict travel to the country. Japan has lost 93% of travelers to the country as of May 2020. We were even supposed to make the trip to the Grand Line of Japan this year. Sadly, like everything else that has been postponed or nearly canceled. Viz Media is giving us hope though with a book they published titled, “Tokyo: Day By Day.”
