A Japanese tourist who was stranded in Peru for almost seven months amid the coronavirus pandemic finally got to visit the famed ruins of Machu Picchu — which was opened only for him, according to reports.

Jesse Katayama, 26, was eager to visit the 15th-century Inca citadel sitting on a 7,970-foot mountain ridge when he arrived in the Andean country in March, but the deadly bug had other plans, the Guardian reported.
