Until recently, Japan didn’t have much of an influx of foreign tourists. Now, it does, and with that comes problems.
Of course, Japan should have a thriving tourism industry! This is a beautiful country with a rich culture, a long history and delicious food. But for much of the 20th and 21st century, foreign tourism in Japan didn’t really exist. There are obvious reasons for that: a World War and expensive air travel are the easiest explanations. Yet even during the 1990s, there weren’t many overseas visitors.
With the rise of Japan’s neighbours in Asia, the country has seen an influx of travellers like never before. In 2018, a record number of 31 million foreign tourists visited Japan, which as Nippon.com explains, was an 8.7 per cent increase from the previous year, which had also been a record-setting year.
