Travellers headed to Japan this summer can apply for free flights to other destinations around the country.
Tokyo-based Japan Airlines (JAL) will begin accepting applications for 50,000 free round-trip tickets from February 2020.
Initiative - Japan - Tourism - Agency - Japan
The initiative is supported by Japan’s Tourism Agency and the Japan National Tourism Organisation as a way to encourage visitors coming to the country for the 2020 Summer Olympics to explore more than just the tourist hot-spots such as Tokyo and Kyoto.
Travellers will have to be ready for an adventure as the free round-trip flight will be to a surprise destination. When applying, visitors will be able to select from four places across the country. However, travellers won't be told until three days before travel which destination they will be flying to.
