Number of foreign visitors to Japan plummeted to record low last month

All national dailies took up data released yesterday by the Japan Tourism Agency showing that only 2,900 foreign travelers visited Japan in April, down 99.9% from a year earlier, amid the global coronavirus pandemic. This was the first time that the monthly figure dropped below the 10,000 mark since 1964, when the GOJ began compiling such statistics. While the GOJ had hoped to attract 40 million foreign travelers this year, only 3.94 million people visited Japan in the first four months.
