Rediscovering the Charm of the Local Region! “Prefectural Resident Discount”

2021-12-02 PLEASURE

This post is also available in 日本語

In Japan, last year, the “Go To Travel” campaign was carried out, in which the charges for domestic trips were discounted, and you received coupons that you could use at your destination. However, this scheme was suspended due to the spread in COVID-19 infection.

The “Prefectural Resident Discount” is a travel discount system that is being executed in place of “Go To Travel”. This is only aimed at residents of that prefecture, and nearly all prefectures are offering discounts on accommodation fees and issuing coupons that can be used during your trip.

Extended until March next year & expanding areas in which it can be used!

The prefectural resident discount is based on “Regional Tourism Business Support” by the Japan Tourism Agency. As this support lasts until December 31, 2021, nearly all prefectures have set the deadline to December 31st. Additionally, it is only prefectural residents that can use this.

However, recently it was announced that support for the Prefectural Resident Discount would be extended to March 10th. Additionally, on the assumption that the “vaccine/test package” is used, it will become available not only to the prefectural residents, but also can be used by those in neighboring prefectures.

For those of you planning trips, perhaps you should check carefully the campaigns in your prefecture or neighboring prefectures. Some new campaigns may be added.

Prefectural Resident Discount List etc.

We have summarized the list of Prefectural Resident Discount and Prefectural Resident Exclusive campaigns currently being run. The discount amount, content of the coupons, and method of application differs according to the prefecture, so please make sure to check out the details in advance.
