Domestic overnight traveler expenditure in Japan 2010-2019

In 2019, the domestic tourism expenditure of overnight travelers in Japan amounted to around 17.2 trillion Japanese yen, up from less than 16 trillion yen in the previous year. The increase in expenditure reflects the recovering number of travelers undertaking overnight trips following the slight drop in 2018 due to a series of natural disasters hitting the Japanese archipelago.

Domestic travels in Japan

The value of tourism expenditure by domestic travelers remained steadily at over 20 trillion yen in recent years, with overnight trips accounting for the lion’s share. While same-day trips were popular during short holidays, the industry was sustained by high travel activities with overnight stays during consecutive public holidays like Golden Week.
The week-long holiday starting at the end of April and running until the beginning of May was considered a popular opportunity among the working population in Japan to spent time with the family and going on leisure trips.

Tourism in Japan

The Japanese tourism industry was a bustling industry, stimulated by an increasing number of inbound visitors in the last decade. Due to its proximity to China, South Korea, and Taiwan, the majority of visitors arrive from East Asia.
Nonetheless, inbound tourism remains overshadowed by the prominence of domestic tourism in Japan, with spending of foreign visitors contributing only one fifth to the gross domestic product.
