Japanese Travel to Australia

by Takuto
(Kanagawa, Japan)

Many Japanese people go to Australia. Actually one of my friends has gone to Australia to study in a college. Some of my friends also travel there. Australia is a popular country in Japan.

Australia is the 2nd most popular destination for Japanese travelers. The most popular one is New Zealand, which is the nearest country to Australia. Around 600,000 Japanese per year now travel to Australia.

But that number of travelers from Japan has recently decreased from 800,000. Some say it’s just because of the recession. And some say it’s because the Australia travel boom has ended.

While the total number of travelers from Japan has decreased, school excursions from Japan are increasing. It’s because Australia is a safe country and they speak English. When teachers decide where they go, they mostly consider whether the place is safe because they have responsibility for the students.

I think Australia has a chance to attract more school excursions. Australia needs to sell safety in order to be more attractive for Japan. I wish these two countries will get closer.

Australia is a safe, English-speaking country

Thanks, Takuto, for your very insightful article on Japanese travel to Australia. I found it very interesting.

I didn't realize so many Japanese people travel to Australia & New Zealand. But that's very understandable, for the reasons you outlined in your nice story.

Thanks for sharing...
