S. Korean tourism to Japan down 35%: Tokyo Regional Immigration Bureau

Japan’s immigration office says the number
of South Korean tourists coming to the country for short visits dropped significantly this
summer. From August 9 to the 18th, just 12-thousand
South Koreans entered Japan through Narita Airport, which is a 35 percent decrease from
the same period last year. The immigration office attributed the sudden
drop to the downturn in the countries’ relations. South Koreans have been boycotting Japanese
products and tourism since early last month.
