Travelers from S. Korea to Japan down 14.6% y/y in Q3 amid souring Seoul-Tokyo ties Updated: 2019-10-29 12:58:09 KST

The number of Koreans traveling to Japan has fallen over the last three months amid the tensions between the two countries.
Data by the transport ministry showed on Tuesday that the number of travelers from South Korea to Japan from July to September was down some 15 percent on-year.
That's mainly because of South Koreans boycotting Japan to protest against Tokyo's trade restrictions on Seoul.
On the other hand, Korean travelers to other countries, including Vietnam, the Philippines and Taiwan have increased 13 percent.
The total number of Korean travelers during the third quarter was up over 4 percent to some 31-million.
