🔒 Lockdown Details for Japan

Although the virus has not spread in Japan at a rate seen in Europe and North America, the rise of infections and resulting impact on the healthcare system have led to the declaration of a third state of emergency in parts of the country in April 2021. The state of emergency is currently observed in 21 of Japan's 47 prefectures, including Tokyo, until September 12.
During the state of emergency, drinking establishments are requested to remain closed. Furthermore, large shopping facilities and tourist attractions are requested to close or to close early in the evenings.
States of emergency were previously observed in spring 2020 nationwide (when schools and a wide array of businesses were closed) and in early 2021 in parts of the country (when early closures of dining and drinking establishments were requested in the evenings).
