Japan reopened its border officially to individual travelers on 11th October 2022

It’s official! Japan has finally reopened its borders to individual travelers. What does it mean to Asian travelers like us? Should we book the flight now? I checked via Skyscanner and found the cheapest return flight to Fukuoka is RM1,279, the return flight to Nagoya is RM1,324 and to Tokyo is RM1,324 if we travel via Phillippine Airlines in October. How tempting!
