JapanIn April, Japan had witnessed an overwhelming number of tourist arrivals with as many as 7.86 million hotel and inn stays owing to the Easter holidays and the cherry blossom season, according to the Japan Tourism Agency who confirmed the information on Friday.

 

This figure represents a rise of about 16% from a year ago.

 

The figure has been the highest for any month ever since the government started compiling the comparable data in the year 2010, it said. The survey, however did not include the people who used private lodging facilities or cruise vessels instead of hotels.
