National travel assistance, some accepting reservations closed, chief cabinet secretary " Considering additional budget allocation"

At a press conference on the morning of the 12th, Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno commented on the flood of reservations for the nationwide travel support program that began on the 11th, and that some reservation sites had closed. Regarding additional allocations, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism will take appropriate measures as necessary, based on the progress of the project."

The prefectures that are in charge of implementing the National Travel Assistance decide on the allocation of budgets to booking websites and accommodation facilities. Once the allocated budget limit has been reached, the system has no choice but to stop accepting applications. Mr. Matsuno also stated, "In response to this situation, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism is urging prefectural governments to review and make additional allocations to the budget allocation between business establishments according to sales performance."
