A record number of tourists visited Japan
The number of tourists visiting Japan last year exceeded 10,3 million people (plus 24%), according to the Japanese Government Tourism Organization (JNTO). Thus, the previous record in 2010 was broken in Japan, when more than 8,6 million tourists visited the country.
More often than not, the Land of the Rising Sun in 2013 was visited by tourists from South Korea - 2,46 million people (growth was 20,2%) and Taiwan - 2,21 million people (plus 50,8%). The only country where the tourist flow declined was China - 1,3 million tourists (minus 7,8% compared to 2012 year).
In Japan last year, visited 60,5 thousand Russian tourists, which is 20,6% more than last year. Nevertheless, Russia takes the last place in the list of 18 countries, of which the largest number of visitors come to Japan. The reason for this is not only the high cost of air travel, but also the difficulty in obtaining a Japanese visa.
