Statistics

The number of foreign tourists has skyrocketed in Japan. In particular, in mid-size (Kyoto, Hiroshima) and smaller cities (Nara, Nikko, Kamakura), the flood of tour buses and camera-toting visitors can be overwhelming in many locations.

As of October 30, 2016, the number of foreign tourists had topped the 20 million mark.

80% of those visitors come from four countries: China, Taiwan, South Korea, and Hong Kong. The government is expecting the total to double to 40 million by 2020, in which Tokyo hosts the summer Olympics.
