Reasons to visit Japan

This has been a very difficult year for Japan’s tourism industry. Since the earthquake and tsunami struck in March, the number of foreign visitors has fallen by 50 percent, according to the Japan National Tourism Organization. With the crisis at the nuclear power plant in Fukushima not yet resolved, it is hard to convince travellers that now is a good time to make the trip to Japan. And yet, it is important to emphasise the positives, and encourage foreigners to look beyond this year’s problems and see Japan for the beautiful and special country that it continues to be. Ben Humphreys, a former colleague of mine, has written an article for The Mainichi Daily News (the English-language edition of Mainichi Shinbun), doing just that. Entitled “Eight reasons to travel to Japan”, Ben’s article explains what a foreign visitor can expect on a trip to Japan and why he loves the country so much:
