Tourism Figures on the Rise

Date Posted: 1999-12-31

On December 24th, the Okinawa Prefectral Tourism Resort Office announced its estimates and predications over tourism in Okinawa. The general word out is that, this coming year, tourists will flock to the island just as much as during the last year, when a record number of people flew into the place. Over 4,570,000 people will have visited Okinawa by the end of the year, according to Prefectural figures.

This year, the numbers reached 4216,900 as of November 1st and continued growing faster, to beat last year’s record by 10.7%. Discount air tickets, the G8 Summit, and aggressive promotion all account for the growth in Okinawa’s tourism industry.
