Speech abstract: The Tokyo Olympic Games to be held in 2020. Japan is preparing for that purpose. In addition, we are advancing the promotion of inbound tourism in recent years, which is getting great success. However, on the other hand, it has big problems in terms of traffic and accommodation. In terms of air transport in particular, the slots of Haneda Airport, the main airport in Japan, has reached the limits. And the acceptance system for business jets is inadequately inadequate. Looking at the current situation related to transportation in Japan, not only for Olympic countermeasures, there is also the influence of e-commerce which has been rapidly developing in recent years, and in logistics as well, due to lack of drivers, a comprehensive logistics system collapses It is in danger of. It is inferred that these problems are actually not just problems in Japan, but have similar problems widely even in the world. Therefore, in this presentation, I would like to present problems in transportation and tourism policies that Japan possesses and strive to be a reference for future efforts in the same field in each country.
