– When Japanese hear "Uzbekistan" and "Samarkand", they first of all imagine the ancient Great Silk Road. Therefore, a lot of Japanese people want to visit this country. However, because of the visa regime, many hesitated whether to visit Uzbekistan. From now on, citizens of Japan can stay in Uzbekistan without a visa for a month, which will increase the flow of tourists, – says Kawakami Kodzuhisa, representative of “All season” tourist company.
