BANGKOK -- Thai tourist spots that take a cue from Japan's landmark locations have attracted the interest of local residents unable to visit the country because of the pandemic.

One such attraction, Harajuku Thailand, partially opened in December. From Bangkok's city center, it takes an hour's drive through rice paddy country to arrive at the location.
