How do i arrange PCR tests when country hopping?

I'm hoping to solo travel in mid 2022.

I can easily get a PCR test here at home (UK) for my first destination.

But, from my first destination, if i need a PCR test to get to my second, how do i go about doing this when abroad? For example, if i wanted to go Japan>South Korea (the latter of which needs a PCR test), is it possible to arrange for one in Japan as a foreigner?

The countries above are just examples and could be different ones, i'm aware it's probably based on the circumstance of the country but i can't find any information on this sort of question

Exactly. To be quite frank, I would consider it totally useless to ask this question using example countries. Someone might tell you "yes, is it possible to arrange for one in Japan as a foreigner", but how is that going to help you if you are actually going to China?

but i can't find any information on this sort of question

Well, no. There aren't that many good crystal balls around. :-) The situation and rules and regulations change all the time, and they differ from country to country. Who knows what will be in mid-2022?

You may be lucky to find someone on the forum who has recently been to Japan (or whatever country you may decide on), but I am afraid you will simply have to do your research and keep an eye on further developments. Look at Japanese government sites or official tourism sites, or google "Japan" and "PCR test". And remember that all the information you may find is for 2021 and not mid-2022.
