If you decide, you can visit the whole country, as there are no restrictions on destinations or means of transportation, as was the case with the trial tours they organized. What do you need, in short, to travel to Japan under the current rules?

Honduras, Nicaragua, Uruguay and others are in the intermediate, yellow group. In this case, you need a PCR test on arrival and a 5-day quarantine (or 3 days if you test negative on the third day). However, upon presentation of the vaccination certificate, nationals of countries in the yellow group do not need either a test or quarantine.

The official information shared by JNTO is a bit “vague”, because it says that to get the ERFS you need to hire a “tourist package” with an agency in Japan. It is not specified what this tour package has to contain (flight and hotel, flight only, etc). Some agencies ask you to contract a package with them so that they can manage the ERFS and thus follow the instructions of JNTO (and also because you supposedly need to communicate a detailed travel itinerary, with the transports you are going to use, where you are going to be at each moment and basic information of the area where you will eat).
