Japan is the most popular destination for tourists from the Chinese mainland for the upcoming Chinese New Year holiday, according to a report released by online travel agency Lvmama.com.

Although Japan has begun levying a 1,000 yen (9 U.S. dollars) departure tax on individual travelers departing the country, this new measure has not changed the Chinese travelers' enthusiasm for visiting Japan during the Chinese New Year holiday.


So far, Ctrip, a Shanghai-based online travel agency, has received tens of thousands of bookings for its Japan travel products for the Spring Festival break. Compared with last year's Spring Festival, the number of Chinese consumers who chose tailored tours in Japan and the number of Chinese people who applied for Japanese visas have both significantly increased this year.  

Data released by Japanese tourism authorities also showed that from January to November in 2018, 7.78 million travelers from the Chinese mainland have visited Japan, a rise of 14.6 percent year on year. Meanwhile, Chinese mainland travelers accounted for 27.24 percent of the total foreign visitors who visited Japan during the same period, making it the largest tourist source for Japan.

Every year, millions of tourists from all over the world travel to Japan to experience its culture, beautiful scenery, shopping, and tourist attractions. From bustling cities to ancient shrines and temples, tourists visiting Japan have a lot to choose from.

And each visitor pays 1000 Japanese yen for 'exit fee.'

That means Uncle Fujimora and company welcome Chinese youths but once they exit Japan. they want their farrting fee.

China government should make serious study on tourism!
Many Chinese believe that the same product if bought and brought home from Japan is more superior than that same product bought in China!
STRANGE MENTALITY!
Please do something to CORRECT and FINE TUNE!

Are you sure it's about quality, and not avoiding import duties? Or avoiding copy products?

As representative of a newly registered company,  I was recently invited to meet & greet at local police station. The chief in the office boasted about an expensive sport watch (with lot of features which he eagerly listed) made in my home country. When I asked if he bought it in China, he said he bought it in Thailand citing heavy import duties that China adds on foreign items like that. It would have been way more expensive bought in China.

You mean parcher has to collect a million plastic bottles to make the trip of his dreams?

That makes sense now that I think about it.
