Barring some kind of disaster, 2024 will smash all records. Folks are literally sprinting for airports around the world, desperate to get into Japan!

Time to buy stocks in Japanese travel-related companies!

Not such a big or remarkable issue. On average that's 1,400 per day per prefecture, of course theoretical and if it would be regarded equally distributed.

Great to see people back here enjoying themselves. I hope they experience the many, wonderful things the country has to offer.

Tourism revenue is obviously welcome for the government and businesses, but for me personally it's nice to hear just how many good things people say about Japan upon visiting. I've never heard anyone say they had a bad vacation, and have heard more than a few "best ever vacation" stories.

The number of Japanese nationals traveling overseas in November stood at 1,027,100, 37.5 percent less than the same month in 2019.

Lack of interest and financial means to go overseas from Japanese themselves. 40% is a big fall. This is not good.

That is huuuuuuge. Where are they all going?

Wherever the CCP tells them - that's exactly how it works. No government approval - no travel.

No tears in Japan though!

That’s great, spend you money and “Go Home” because:

“It’s MINE, it’s MY Island” now…but I can stay.

40% less people have travelled from Japan.

significant drop showing that travel abroad for many japanese not possible thanks to stagnating salaries and price risings at home for virtually everything.
