Japanese tourists return to Bali

Number of Japanese tourists in Bali gradually increasing again

Tourists from Japan comprise the third-largest Bali’s foreign visitors group after Australia and China.

Japanese travelers used to flock in droves to Bali, a favorite holiday destination especially for newlyweds, but their numbers have dwindled since 2011.

The stoppage of Japan Airlines (JAL)’s direct flights to Bali, the scarcity of Garuda Indonesia’s direct flights between Bali and cities in Japan, the global economic downturn and the tsunami in 2011 jointly contributed to the fall in the number of Japanese holidaymakers in Bali over the last three years. But now, according to the Bali Tourism Agency, things have picked up and Japanese tourists are slowly but surely increasing again.

Official data from the Bali Statistics Agency showed a rosy picture revealing a 26.8 percent increase in the number of Japanese tourist arrivals in October, reaching 17,845 persons, as compared to 14,064 persons in the same period last year. Between Jan-Oct 2012, the number of Japanese tourists visiting Bali reached 155,519 persons.

Tourists from Japan comprise the third-largest foreign visitors group after Australia and China, making up roughly 6.61 percent of over 2 million people.
