Japanese travel agency JTB Corp. announced Wednesday that it will begin sales of a package tour to Honolulu on Friday, for departures from April 28, roughly two years after halting overseas package tours amid pandemic-induced restrictions on travel.

HIS Co. also said it plans to resume package holidays to Hawaii, with departures starting May 1, the first time it’s operated such tours to one of Japan’s favorite destinations since halting them in March 2020.
