A man in his thirties heading to Niigata said, “I’m going to see my transferred friend. It’s a great opportunity to use the Go To campaign, so I’m looking forward to seeing you again.”
As the spread of the new coronavirus spread throughout the country, some people said they were worried about going on a trip, and a woman in her 70s heading to Miyagi said, “My grandson wants to take the Shinkansen, so I had planned it for a month. The spread of the infection is annoying, but I’ve cut it off.”

A man in his thirties in Kanagawa Prefecture, who returned to Sendai city where his wife’s parents live for the first time in a year, said, “There may be a risk of infection when traveling in such an environment, but I also have a strong desire to show my grandchildren to my parents, so I came back with good physical condition management. I don’t want to go out to play, I want to spend time at home.”
