Japan has opened up to individual Chinese tourists. And the first batch are excited about their new found freedom.

On Wednesday afternoon, the first group of 18 Chinese tourists arrived at Narita Airport. Ma Juncheng's family is the largest of the five in the group. He says he's been looking forward to this for a long time.

The director of Japan's Tourism Agency welcomed the tourists with gifts.

Yoshiaki Honpo, director of Japan Tourism Agency said, "China is a major source for tourists and has a vast market potential. We expect that Chinese tourists can help stimulate the Japanese economy."

On April 1st, Japan allowed Chinese families to visit in tour groups accompanied by a guide. But there were still numerous restrictions. The new freedoms are expected to increase the number of Chinese tourists.
