June 20 - State of emergency for Tokyo will end

With only a month to go until the opening of the Olympics, the state of emergency will be lifted for the capital city while looser restrictions will remain.


Restaurants will continue to be asked to close at 8 pm. Alcohol can be served until 7pm, but not to groups of 3 or more people. Customers served alcohol must leave in 90 minutes.


Kanagawa Prefecture (including Yokohama) will allow groups of up to 4 to drink but the same 90 minute rule applies.


Many tourist facilities continue to be closed or operate in reduced hours. For example, the Tokyo Skytree is currently open only on weekdays and closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
