Foreign tourists spend a total of 4.5 trillion Yen in Japan last year

Published on : Monday, January 21, 2019

Last year, foreign tourists spent a total of 4.5 trillion Yen (US$41.37 billion) in Japan, of which 335.5 billion Yen, or 7.4 percent, was contributed by Hong Kong visitors. Hongkongers contribute significantly to Japan tourism boom.

 

A vacation in Japan covers everything from delicious sushi and sashimi to a stay in a quaint and tidy ryokan, amazing sights, great shopping bargains, and these are just the perfect therapy that a workaholic needs to recharge their energy.

 

The beauty of Japan is known universally. Last year, the number of visitors to Japan reached 31.19 million, going up by 8.7 percent to a record high, according to the Japan Tourism Agency.

 

Japan hopes to attract 40 million visitors in 2020. Interestingly, Hong Kong is the only country in Asia that registered a decrease in the number of visitors to Japan last year. But still, it represented a significant number.

 

The slight dip in Hong Kong visitors can be attributed to Typhoon Jebi, which resulted in the closure of Kansai International Airport for more than a week. The Hokkaido earthquake last year also had an effect. On the other hand, visitors from mainland China grew 13.9 percent last year to 8.38 million. Visitors from South Korea rose to 5.6 percent, and from Taiwan, the numbers increased to 4.2 percent. Foreign tourists spent a total of 4.5 trillion Yen (US$41.37 billion) in Japan.
