Visitors who are looking to see the sights of the Japanese capital can use an extension visa that allows them to travel up to 30 days from their home country to visit one of the city’s attractions.
However, some Japanese visitors who are trying to visit Tokyo’s most famous sights are worried that they will be caught in the sights.
The tourist attraction system in Japan allows tourists who have paid for a visa extension to stay for up to a month in the capital and can then return home after the expiry date.
For many Japanese visitors, however, a tourist visa extension can be a hassle because of the cost involved and how long it takes to get a visa.
Takashi Kato is the founder of the website TourismJapan.com and says the extension visa has been one of Tokyo’s main problems.
He says it is costing the city too much money to keep the system running.
“They are paying people who are not actually going to visit the sites that are the main tourist attractions in Japan and they are spending a lot of money on tourism,” he said.
It is costing Tokyo an estimated 2.3 billion yen ($2.4 million) annually to maintain the system.
This includes salaries, hotel rooms, and airfare to Tokyo and other overseas destinations.
Kato says this money should be spent on tourists, not the system itself.
A spokesman for the Ministry of Tourism says the government will consider whether it needs to expand the system or whether it should change the rules.
If the extension is expanded, it would cost around 1 billion yen to extend a tourist’s visa from one to 30.
Tokyo’s tourism board has been considering an extension of up to 60 days since last year and in April, it approved a plan to extend the rules from 30 days to 90 days.
But the government has yet to formally propose a new plan.
What’s the point of a tourist?
A visitor who is in Japan for business or pleasure should not have to pay a visa fee, according to a study by the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
According to the report, a visitor who stays in Japan longer than 30 days and then comes back would not qualify for an extension.
That means that a tourist who stays for 30 days in Japan could be subject to a fine if they were to return to the country after a period of stay.
In addition, it is also possible that the tourist could be denied a visa if they come back to Japan after spending more than 90 days in the country.
Tourists who are in Japan on a tourist vacation could be liable for fines and other penalties for violating the tourist ban.
Japanese law has also created a number of other restrictions on visitors visiting Tokyo.
Tourism officials are also taking a more aggressive stance in enforcing the rules in the city, which are in line with the government’s stance in the case of tourists who enter Japan for personal reasons.
The government is also cracking down on those who violate the tourist system.
In December, a Japanese tourist was charged with violating a tourist ban by entering Japan illegally.
Earlier this year, a British tourist who was in Japan illegally for four months was arrested and fined 5,000 yen ($5,300) after being found guilty of breaking a tourist restriction.
The Japanese government has also banned Japanese tourists from bringing more than 30 people with them to Japan.
Many foreigners who have made the trip to Japan say the rule is unfair and they have complained to Japanese authorities about the number of people who can enter the country for an extended period.
Is Japan getting a tourist spike?
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has said that Japan’s tourism industry is getting a boost with the introduction of an extension system that allows visitors to stay in Japan more than a month.
Basho said that the extension system has helped the country’s economy grow and is helping to support tourism at a time when Japan is struggling with the economic downturn.
Although there are still problems with Japan’s tourist system, he said, it has come a long way since the last recession.
Japan has the highest proportion of foreign visitors in the world at 27 percent, but the country is one of only two nations in the OECD where foreign visitors account for only 5 percent of the population.
At the same time, foreign tourists account for just over a quarter of the total population of Japan.
