HCMC – The number of Vietnamese visitors to Japan has reached a historic high of 536,800 in the first 11 months of this year, surpassing the previous record set in 2019, according to the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO).

The JNTO anticipates that the final month of this year will contribute significantly to the total number of Vietnamese visitors to Japan for the entire year. This positive trend reflects the strengthening connectivity between the two nations.

In contrast, data from the Vietnam National Authority of Tourism (VNAT) indicates that Vietnam received nearly 530,000 visitors from Japan over the same 11-month period. Japan has emerged as one of Vietnam’s top five tourism source markets during this period.

Yoshida Kenji, chief representative of JNTO in Vietnam, stated that the organization’s target of welcoming 500,000 Vietnamese arrivals was achieved one month earlier, highlighting the collective efforts of the organization since the autumn of 2021.

“In the coming year, we will collaborate with tourism agencies to develop three new tourism strategies in Vietnam as outlined by the Japanese Government. These strategies include sustainable tourism development, increasing tourism spending, and promoting local attractions,” said the chief representative.
