The number of foreign visitors to Japan has plummeted in the wake of the March 11 earthquake and ensuing trouble.

Compared with April 2010, the number of visitors dropped 62.5% this April.

The total number of arrivals was 295,8000, which is the first time that figure has dipped below 300,000 since May 2003 during the SARS epidemic.
