This language has been verified as eligible. The language is eligible for a project, which means that the subdomain can be created once there is an active community and a localized interface, as described in the language proposal policy. You can discuss the creation of this language project on this page.
If you think the criteria are met, but the project is still waiting for approval, feel free to notify the committee and ask them to consider its approval.

The community needs to develop an active test project; it must remain active until approval (automated statistics, recent changes). It is generally considered active if the analysis lists at least three active, not-grayed-out editors listed in the sections for the previous few months.
"Wikivoyage talk" (the discussion namespace of the project namespace)
Default is "no". Preferably, files should be uploaded to Commons.
If you want, you can enable local file uploading, either by any user ("yes") or by administrators only ("admin"). Notes: (1) This setting can be changed afterwards. The setting can only be "yes" or "admin" at approval if the test creates an Exemption Doctrine Policy (EDP) first. (2) Files on Commons can be used on all Wikis. (3) Uploading fair-use images is not allowed on Commons (more info). (4) Localisation to your language may be insufficient on Commons.
NB: Previously, we hoped Japanese Wikivoyage could be created directly (in 2013) when Wikivoyage was taken over by the WMF. That couldn't be done; by now it wouldn't make much sense to create a project without an active community. --MF-W 00:42, 7 November 2017 (UTC)

Comment. Unfortunately, the test wiki is currently nowhere near active enough to get a standalone wiki. (See first bullet point above, starting with "The community needs to".) If you want to support this project, please become a regular contributor to the test wiki at the Incubator and convince some other users to do the same. - dcljr (talk)
Strong support without a doubt. This is the best Wikivoyage candidate on meta by far. The Japanese are some of the world's most enthusiastic travellers and should be more than eager to contribute. Sabon Harshe (talk) 17:28, 24 December 2019 (UTC)
