Visitors to Japan Dive 76.3 Pct in Jan.-June

   Tokyo, July 15 (Jiji Press)--The number of foreign visitors to Japan in the first half of 2020 is estimated to have dropped 76.3 pct from a year before, the Japan National Tourism Organization said Wednesday.
   The decline was caused by travel restrictions imposed around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
   The January-June total of 3,947,000 marked the lowest first-half level since the six months ended in June 2011, when a major earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in March that year scared off visitors.
   In June 2020 alone, the estimated number of visitors to Japan dropped 99.9 pct from a year earlier to 2,600.
