Check the Japanese government’s advice on this process on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website.
Travelers who are Japanese nationals and residents arriving from the UK or South Africa are subject to a 3-day self-isolation at a location designated by the quarantine station chief. On the third day they are required to take the COVID-19 test again. If the test is negative they will be allowed to continue the 14-day self-isolation as set out below.

Cons: "Allergic to cat/dog dander. Had dog with no kennel in window seat of my row. I was on aisle seat. As we all got up to let the owner go to the bathroom a dog followed walking on my seat. For the last hour and a half of the flight the dog Sat on the owners lap. My allergies and asthma begin to flare up prior to landing . Not a pleasant flight ."
Cons: "It was an eight and a half hour flight that took place in the night. My seat was broken so it did not recline. I also have trouble sleeping on flights and thought there would be the opportunity to watch TV/movies but this was not the case unless you wanted to pay extra. Most international flights already have this built in for free and should be included in the cost. What a disappointment flying on American was. I will take LAN or Copa from now on as my other options."

Pros: "I did not die"
Cons: "planes were old, they lost my checked bags, the seats did not recline on a 5 hours flight, the movie was the same for everyone on the plane, food was a disgrace, seats were so small I was pretty much bitting my knees the whole trip. Overall, I am ever flying with American Airlines or Latam ever again."

Pros: "The food and entertainment were adequate, and the pilot did a good job of communicating the status of our delay."
Cons: "Takeoff was 2 hours delayed because we were waiting for the first officer. Surely this could have been anticipated and resolved earlier. The crew was inappropriately familiar with the passengers. We are not friends, and I prefer a bit of professional distance. The seats are designed for VERY tall people; my feet were swinging, as were those of everyone in my row. It was quite uncomfortable."

Cons: "The pain from carrying bag between gates"
Pros: "It was a very short flight so not too much to go wrong."
Cons: "I had a carry on and a laptop case that fit under the seat. The laptop case has wheels and a handle. The gate agent said I need to check one bag, even though I could show that the laptop case was within the specs for fitting under the seat. When I tried to argue with her, she said, "One of your bags is going to be checked--which one is it going to be?" Bad attitude."
Pros: "Complimentary cocktail! Great selection of entertainment on our own personal screen."
Cons: "Boarding agent was abrupt"
Pros: "Full meal service, friendly and helpful crew, checkin agent went above and beyond to get us checked in even though we were late in getting to the airport."
Cons: "Ancient plane with old, uncomfortable seats and no in-seat entertainment. AA should warn customers when booking these old planes."
Pros: "Relatively uncorwdedcat that time so I got row to myself. Good amount of legroom"
Pros: "good selection of movies"
Cons: "Mess up between the 2 airlines operating the 2 different legs of the journey means that we didn't get our boarding pass and (the worst) seats until 1h15 before departure... and we were not the only ones facing this stressful situation. One luggage lost, with Iberia luggage delivery service team in Barcelona being slow to understand how to work a google map."
Pros: "Premium space"
Cons: "Sporadic communication from flight deck on the nature of 2-hour flight delay. Initially we understood that dispatch was the issue because of fuel for the flight. Next, it was a weather delay followed by an apparent ground stop."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and the pilot did a nice job of getting us to and from Miami. Thank you!"
Cons: "The flight time said an hour, yet our arrival time was 6 hours. Then we proceeded to sit on the runway for 20 minutes before take off and now at 45 minutes after we landed. Someone should have planned gates and deplaning schedules better, it's an awful experience sitting and doing nothing when you're so close to being home. The other thing that was bothersome was on this 6 hour flight, my entertainment screen didn't work. Which not only meant I would need to entertain myself for the next 6 hours, but also there wasn't a way to get the flight attendants attention. When they came around with drinks, I asked two of them how to fix the screen and they gave me two different answers which neither worked. Then when I needed anything I would have to make my neighbors move and go walk to find someone. Overall not my favorite flying experience and didn't feel taken care of by the crew or AA. And to think I spent extra money to fly with AA..."
Cons: "My flight was delayed for 3 hours and they where rude about my flight being delayed"
Cons: "Voar 8 horas de Miami para Sao Paulo sem entretenimento de bordo foi péssimo. Poucos filmes e nenhum com legenda em Português. Se o voo era pro Brasil acho que era o mínimo que se poderia esperar. A comida estava horrível."
Pros: "Sits were comfortable, love the tv combo allow to charge my phone"
Cons: "Cabin was very hot no air conditioning"
Pros: "good food, choose the pasta"
Cons: "a stop on La Paz on the flight back, the altittude hit hard."
Pros: "The crew was nice Smooth ride"
Pros: "Even though flight was full, everything just flowed - no issues."
Cons: "Video was for cabin and not by seat"
Pros: "Almost nothing"
Cons: "The food, aircraft, video entertainment system.....all"
Pros: "Business cabin crew was very nice which is becoming something very rare at American. They did all they could to please us."
Cons: "This was a late flight and although the crew was very nice. The plane had no food. Yes we had a short layover and could not eat. We really expected to have a warm meal served on the plane and we were flying business. American always falls short. This is why the less expensive airlines are kicking their butt."
Pros: "Uneventful flight"
Cons: "It was the same crew from my previous flight from San Juan to Miami. They were not nice before and they were not nice on the second flight. It was a long day for us too."
