Japan is planning to issue travellers with coronavirus inoculation certificates this (northern) summer.

That is ... now.

Via the Nikkei: (may be gated)  
  • to vaccinated residents travelling abroad
  • European Union will adopt them in July
  • interagency team led by Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato is discussing an official program for businesspeople and others
  • a paper certificate this summer, followed by a digital version -- possibly used through a smartphone app -- by the end of the year
As an aside ... a paper certificate ... yes, this Japan after all.
