Japanese tourism agency says industry closing in on pre March 2011 activity levels
Tourism arrival numbers into Japan during March reached a level close to pre March 2011 disaster levels, the Japan National Tourism Organisation (JNTO) has revealed.
According to JNTO visitor arrival numbers to Japan reached approximately 678,500 for the month of March this year, down only 4.4% from March 2010, The Japan Times reported.
Since the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck the region last year the tourist arrival numbers dropped to 352,666, which in comparison to the arrival figures for March this year represents a 92.4% rebound.
Additionally, compared to March 2010, visitors from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Britain and India also rose. However, visitors from South Korea dropped a considerable 11%.
While visitor arrival numbers into Japan are on the increase, the number of outbound Japanese travellers for March has also increased by 21.4% to 1.73 million compared to the previous year.
