Japan’s tourism sector has, over the past few years, faced numerous challenges. After a decline of 18.7% in 2009 as a result of the global financial crisis, inbound tourism increased at a rate of 26.8% in 2010 but was followed by another sharp downturn in 2011 in the aftermath of an earthquake, subsequent tsunami and nuclear crisis. However, there has been a solid recovery in the past year, with the number of inbound tourists increasing by 34.6% in 2012 to reach 8.4 million. The tourism sector is expected to enjoy steady growth over the forecast period, with inbound tourist arrivals expected to reach 11.0 million by 2017. However, fears of natural disasters and the strong yen could still limit the sector’s expansion. http://www.bharatbook.com/travel-and-tourism-market-research-reports/travel-and-tourism-in-japan-to-2017.html
