Goway Trend Watch: Japan Remains One of Asia’s Most Popular Destinations
October 10, 2018
When it comes to the hottest travel destinations in Asia for North American visitors, Japan is at or near the top of every list. Forbes Magazine listed it on its “Top 10 Travel Destinations on the Rise in 2018” while even Lonely Planet’s latest “Top 10 Beach Destinations” included Japan on the list, with Okinawa coming in at No. 9. At Goway Travel, Japan has consistently ranked second in sales in Asia for the past few years and there doesn’t seem to be any sign of sales slowing down. It’s easy to see why.
Japan has a great transportation network, awe-inspiring landscapes, and many regions and cities that are the envy of the rest of the world. It’s a foodie paradise, exceptionally safe, and boasts a charming contrast between the traditional and the ultra-modern. It’s a country that appeals to all types of travellers.
The cherry blossom season in the months of March and April continue to be the busiest time of year to visit, but trust our Japan experts at Goway Asia when they say there is no bad time to travel to Japan. Fall brings the glorious red and gold foliage while the winter transforms parts of the country into magical wonderlands with the cozy convenience of hot springs and traditional lodgings. Your clients should consider travelling outside of the popular cherry blossom season to avoid the crowds and experience the multifaceted appeal of Japan. Each season has its own charms that will entice any traveller to return again.
