Having introduced re-opened places in Japan after the coronavirus shutdowns, due to the measure to prevent the further spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are still advised to stay home and avoid going out non-essentially.

Even if you are locked inside home, there are several contents that you can enjoy Japan without visiting there such as watching anime, dramas, movies, reading manga or books, play games and so on. There are also unique live-streaming service available at many locations in Japan that can take you to a little virtual trip. If you need extra data or fast-speed internet, consider getting the best pocket WiFi option in Japan, too.
