Japanese tourism industry comeback to continue in 2013

Published on : Thursday, February 14, 2013

Japanese travel remains heavily influenced by external events. Outbound travel slumped after the March 2011 earthquake but already started to recover late in that year. Last year it grew strongly in the first half of the year but again started to slow down due to the well-publicised dispute with China over a group of uninhabited islands.

Nevertheless, Japanese remain fairly positive about their travel plans for 2013, the Asian Travel Monitor (ATM) found. Only 28% said the crisis will impact on their travel behaviour in 2013, compared to 33% last year.

A stable 21% plan to travel abroad more this year and an unchanged 54% will travel about the same. However, more people who in 2011 said they would travel abroad less now say they will not travel at all. Overall, the ATM predicts 3% growth for Japanese outbound travel this year.
