S. Korean Flyers to Narita during Summer Drop 34.7 pct

S. Korean Flyers to Narita during Summer Drop 34.7 pct

   Tokyo, Aug. 23 (Jiji Press)--The number of South Korean citizens entering Japan at Narita International Airport near Tokyo for short stays during the summer holiday period of Aug. 9 to Sunday totaled 12,260, down 34.7 pct from the same period the previous year, a government bureau announced Friday.
   The drop in the number of travelers, released by the Tokyo Regional Immigration Bureau's Narita Airport District Immigration Office, is apparently attributed to rising tensions between the Japanese and South Korean governments over trade issues. Tourists make up a majority of those arriving for short stays.
   The bureau also said that 58,200 people headed for South Korea from the airport during the same period, up 4.3 pct.
   People flying in for short stays from and flying out to Hong Kong, amid multiple flight cancellations over large-scale protests leading to the shutdown of Hong Kong International Airport, saw steep drops of 10.1 pct and 11.2 pct, respectively.
   The total number of people flying in or out of the country using the Narita airport during the period stood at 1,056,680, up 4.6 pct.
