Number of Foreign Visitors to Prefecture Tops 2 Million for First Time
As the number of foreign visitors grows throughout Japan, last year, Fukuoka welcomed a record high 2.086 million foreign tourists, a 72% increase year-on-year and the first time the number has surpassed the two million mark. Between January and June of this year, visitor numbers have already reached 1.22 million, or 41% more than the same period last year. Clocking in at over 90%, South Korea, Taiwan and China account for the vast majority of visitors from overseas. Visitor numbers fell off temporarily after the Kumamoto Earthquakes this April, but the Prefecture has been working hard to boost these figures by enacting measures to dispel quake-related rumors and get visitors to open their wallets.
