Good news, FHM Nation: Filipinos will soon have the opportunity to travel to Japan without any need for a visa!

According to a report from Kyodo News, the Japanese government and its ruling coalition are now making arrangements to exempt tourists from the Philippines, Indonesia, and Vietnam from the visa requirement in an effort to boost tourism just in time for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

"It seems na ili-lift nila itong June," Philippine Ambassador to Japan Manuel Lopez told dzMM last week. "May nakausap akong isang Japanese official who told me it may happen anytime very soon." All of this sure sounds promising, but don't book a flight to the land of the rising sun just yet.

The Japanese Embassy in Manila wants to clarify that the proposal to waive the visa requirement remains to be a plan, and that it would require bilateral talks between Tokyo and Manila. "At this point, the exemption of visas for these three countries and the possibility of including this in the action plan has not reached any conclusion," says the embassy's press officer, Miwa Yamatoya. 

That's fine by us, but it's still going to happen, right? It's just that we really, really want to go there. Do you even have to ask why? Okay...

...Because for starters, we want to visit Alodia Gosiengfiao, who now resides in Shibuya. Thanks for the tip, Jay Tablante!

...Because there's a restaurant in Tokyo called Nyotaimori that serves sushi and sashimi on a naked woman's body. You can even slice the body open and chow down on the bloody remains. Not gross at all!

...Because according to Buzzfeed, the Arashiyama park in Kyoto is one of the dopest places to get high on weed. Look at those tall-ass bamboo sticks.

...Because there are vending machines in Harajuku that sell undies once worn by Japanese school girls. Wait, what?
