Every year between January and September (peak season), visitors from all over the world come to Japan for some sight-seeing and food trip. According to Japan National Tourist Organization, the country is about to reach the 10 million mark soon. With such a huge success, the country’s goal of increasing the number of tourists is definitely considered a very successful drive. With some changes in the visa policies as well as decrease in flight costs, many people are able to afford a good stay in Japan.

The government also continuously improves and makes the country a conducive place for people to enjoy the excellent food, breath taking tourist spots and the most importantly, the Japanese culture.
