In April, officials of the Italian island of Sicily announced that they would pay a portion of travelers’ stay by covering at least half of airline tickets plus one out of every three hotel nights.

And if you’ve dreamed of visiting Japan, now could be your chance as the country plans to take a play from Italy’s playbook.

Tourism leaders in Japan have announced that they, too, will pay a portion of travelers’ expenses in an effort to boost the country’s tourism sector post-coronavirus.

Japan’s new initiative will reportedly cost $12.5 billion and will offer to pay a portion of their vacation fees.

And while details surrounding exactly how it will work are up in the air, the program could start as soon as July 2020 providing Japan’s travel restrictions ease up, as reported in Forbes.

Japan was originally embracing to be an epicenter from the pandemic but the country has been considered to be a success story. 

The country of 126 million people has had only 16,433 infections and 784 deaths.
