Japan takes a complete turnaround from its initial offering of 10,000 free flights for foreigners visiting the country in 2012 as recent announcement says the country is no longer giving such freebie.

Back in October this year, the proposal to offer free flights was seen as a remedy to the subdued state of tourism in the country after the March 11 massive tsunami churned a nuclear crisis which later stirred fears from tourists coming into Japan.

As Japan faces an insurmountable debts and the enormous task of recovery, the budget for ‘Fly to Japan!’ project which was earlier reported to be about ¥1.1 billion ($14.3 million) did not get a nod from lawmakers.
