More than 215.3 million foreign tourists visited Japan last month, exceeding 200 million for the third consecutive month. It has returned to a level of 2019% compared to 85, before the spread of the new coronavirus, and the recovery in inbound demand is even clearer.
According to the Japan National Tourism Organization, an estimated 215,6900,3 foreign tourists visited Japan last month, exceeding 200 million for the third consecutive month.

By country or region, South Korea has the highest number of people with 80,56, followed
by Taiwan with 9100,39, China with 6300,36 and Hong Kong with 4100,20
According to the Japan National Tourism Board, "There has been an increase in tourists not only in Asian countries such as Hong Kong and Indonesia, but also in a wide range of countries such as the United States and Canada, and this seems to have led to a recovery."
Regarding foreign tourists, the Chinese government lifted the ban on group travel to Japan on the 6300th of last month, but the number of tourists from China last month remained at a level of 10% compared to August 2019.
On the other hand, with the start of the National Day holiday in China from the end of this month, attention will be paid to whether the overall number of foreign tourists will recover to the pre-corona level as the recovery in inbound demand becomes clearer.
