    The rate marks the highest since 2009, when the number gained 28.7 percent from a year before.

    The rise in the number of South Korean visitors to Japan, on the other hand, slowed from a year earlier, according to related data from the Japanese National Tourism Organization.

    The number of South Korean visitors to Japan came to about 7.53 million in 2018, up 5.6 percent on-year.

    Still, the number marks the highest since Japan began releasing such data in 2003. (Yonhap)
