Japan has become a popular destination for foreign tourists, especially in the wake of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that struck the country in March 2011.
The country has been the top destination for American travelers in the past year, with flights from New York to Tokyo and Washington, DC, and Singapore to Osaka and Osaka Prefecture making up almost a quarter of all international travel from October through December, according to data from the Tourism Research Institute.
The number of Americans visiting Japan has jumped nearly 30 percent in the first three months of 2016 compared with the same period in 2015, according the TRI data.
The US is now second-largest source of international travelers to Japan, after Australia.
The United States is a popular travel destination for Americans in Japan, too, with more than one in five visitors in Japan visiting the US in 2016.
The TRI found that about 70 percent of visitors to Japan in 2016 were from the United States.
More than two-thirds of Americans visit Japan on business, according a survey by the Travel Association, an association of international travel organizations.
But more than a third of Japanese visitors to the United Kingdom in 2016 stayed in Japan during their stay.
Japanese tourism officials say it’s difficult to predict when or if Americans will return to Japan.
But tourism officials from the country’s government and some of the nation’s largest hotel chains say the country is in good shape, with hotels full of Americans who have chosen to stay in the country.
For the past decade, Japan has been a favorite destination for tourists, said Takuya Nakanishi, vice president of Japanese tourism for hotel chain Hilton Worldwide Inc., which is based in Tokyo.
“I think the US will come back again, if they choose to come back,” he said.
In recent years, there has been an influx of Americans, Nakanishis said, especially younger Americans who want to go abroad.
They are looking for a vacation, and we are providing it, he said, noting that a large number of Japanese have visited America.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has promised to reopen Japan’s borders to American travelers, including those from Europe.
But there are still concerns about the countrys security, particularly from terrorism and the spread of diseases in Japan.
“It is a very difficult situation.
It’s been a while since we’ve had a pandemic.
There is no guarantee that this disease will not spread to the rest of the world,” said Yasuhisa Kawakami, a professor of international relations at the University of Washington, who is also a member of the government-funded Global Health Alliance.
