Abstract for: Economic impacts of COVID-19 on domestic tourism

Coronavirus disease 2019 continued to spread, especially in large cities. The self-restraint of movement has been necessary to reduce the risk of spread across cities. As a result, we must refrain the domestic travel to reduce the nationwide spread. Tourism in the Izu Peninsula area of Shizuoka Prefecture in Japan, which has many guests from the capital Tokyo area, is greatly affected by the self-restraint of movement. Residents of many tourist spots rely on exogenous expenditure by tourists. This study clarifies the economic impact of the two-year restraint on travel in the Izu Peninsula region. In addition, it provides materials for consideration for post-covid regional economic policies.
