TOKYO -- Reservations for international flights to Japan in December and January have increased fivefold ahead of next week's resumption of visa-free travel, All Nippon Airways said Friday.

Travel demand has surged after the Sept. 22 announcement by the government, which will also ended Japan's cap on daily arrivals and a requirement for chaperoned tours. The eased rules take effect Tuesday.
