Japan's tourism market continues to benefit significantly from the weak yen, which is attracting a large number of tourists from the region and an increasing number particularly from China. Visitor numbers are therefore set to continue increasing by 2.73% in 2016, reaching 24.1mn. The weak yen is also contributing to an increase in the total value of tourism receipts, of which travel items receipts represent the largest part, showing that tourists are spending. Supporting growth in both inbound and domestic tourism is Japan's well-developed hotel market and extensive transport network, which ensure the country is well placed to keep up with growth. Outbound tourism, on the other hand, is set to witness a slow growth, mostly due to the difficulties that the Japanese economy continues to experience.
