Japan tourism receives record arrival this November

Published on : Thursday, December 21, 2017

images (5)In November, Japan welcomed over 27% foreign visitors than a year before as budget airlines expanded their routes in Asia, as confirmed by the tourism promotion agency of the country.

Over 2.37 million tourists arrived in the month, creating a record footfall for November, the Japan National Tourism Organization confirmed on Wednesday. Visitor arrival from South Korea, China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Russia all grew 30% or more, thanks to low-cost air airlines expanding to new routes in Asia and increasing service.

What’s more, the data of the November shows a major pickup in foreign visitors. From January to November, arrivals increased only 19% on the year, totaling 26.16 million.
The total count for 2017 has the possibility to reach somewhere around 28.5 million people, Commissioner Ahikiko Tamura informed a news conference, distinguishing the year in terms of development and expansion. In 2016, 24 million people visited Japan.
Japan’s next challenge lies in attracting European and American tourists as the government targets 40 million visitors in 2020.
