China Japan’s third-biggest tourist source in Jan, Kyodo says

The number of Chinese tourists visiting Japan in January totaled 155,700, third behind South Korea’s 255,500 and Taiwan’s 196,900, Kyodo news agency reported Wednesday, citing data from the Japan National Tourism Organization. Japan had 944,000 overseas visitors last month, up 41.2 percent from a year earlier and a record for January. The increase was mainly attributed to the Lunar New Year holiday that began near the end of the month, the report said.
