Machu Picchu, the Inca citadel located in the Andes, southern Peru, opened this week to allow one stranded Japanese tourist to visit the site. It has been closed to tourists since March 16 due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Jesse Katayama was supposed to visit the 15th century site in March and when it closed he became stranded in the nearby mountain town of Aguas Calientes, where he has been staying ever since.
