The Japan Tourism Agency announced on May 30 that it had canceled a tour to demonstrate acceptance of tourism to Japan, including Fukuoka Prefecture, after confirming that one of the participants was infected with a new coronavirus. According to the Tourism Agency, the cancellation was a trial tour from Thailand via Haneda Airport to Fukuoka Airport for five days and four nights to resume the acceptance of tourists to Japan. On the morning of the 30th, one of the four tourists had a sore throat while staying in Oita Prefecture, and an antigen test revealed that he was infected with a new coronavirus. The other three have no confirmed infection but are waiting in another hotel as close contacts. After touring Fukuoka City, including Fukuoka Tower, in a special minibus, four people stayed in Beppu City and Yufuin Town in Oita Prefecture. They were scheduled to return to Fukuoka Prefecture on the 30th to stay overnight. Source: KBC
