Japan’s travel subsidy program, launched in July to help revive domestic tourism hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic, will cover half of travelers’ costs from October, up from the current 35 percent, tourism minister Kazuyoshi Akaba said Tuesday.

Akaba said the coupons are expected to “recover lost travel demand as well as widely spur consumption at local destinations.”

The central government will subsidize up to 20,000 yen
