  1. Another misleading by not reporting the whole picture. With only Korean visits down, the entire number of foreign visitors as well as sales in Japan increased. Japan tourism now knows how to survive and prosper without Koreans.

  2. Tokyo's export curbs have taken advantage of trade in retaliation against political issues. Japan should take lessons from Germany that earned the trust of the international community through its acceptance and sorrow for its past.

  3. But the amount of visitors in Japan increased in September. Do you know what it meant? The absence of Korean tourists is the bless for the other countrymen. It's bloody sad, isn't it?

  4. Sad, Korean outbaound tour business owners are completely ignored. Is Korea in democracy? Do they have freedom of excpression there?
