Mutual Tourism Opportunity Seen by Japan and China

Mutual Tourism Opportunity Seen by Japan and ChinaJapan and China are looking for a mutual tourism investment opportunity as both countries are experiencing has increased its tourist flows in the recent years. China is welcoming and is in full support of Japanese companies that are looking to invest in the booming industry in China, and China hopes Japan introduce attractive policies to Chinese companies to invest in the sector.

A 3,000 member Japanese delegation which include heads of local government and enterprises came to Beijing last Friday to attend a series of tourism, cultural and trade event. This will be the largest mission between the two countries since Japan said purchase of Diaoyu Island in 2012 which put to a halt any bilateral ties.

Tourism between Japan and China also cooled down after the said purchase of the islands in 2012 and the visit of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to the Yasukuni Shrine which is a symbol of the Japanese aggression that honors war criminals. Then in 2013 Chinese tourist to Japan dropped 6.5 percent but as the relationship slowly improved tourism slowly increased and last year around 2.4 million Chinese visited Japan.
