Earlier in the year, Skyscanner Australia noted that bookings to Japan were 35 per cent higher than the first half of 2017.
Figures from the Japan National Tourism Organisation show that the country is one of the fastest-growing holiday destinations for Australians this year.
Its data showed a 170 per cent hike in trips to Japan by Australians over the last five years.
It is believed the bookings have eclipsed places like Bali or Thailand in some cases.
‘Japan’s strength and appeal as a travel destination lies in our difference,’ Japan National Tourism Organisation in Sydney Executive Director Kana Wakabayashi said.
‘We can offer experiences that can’t be found anywhere else in the world, like eating yakitori in a lane-way bar and chatting with locals, soaking in a natural hot-spring with a view of Mt Fuji or even hiking along an ancient trail and visiting beautifully preserved post towns.’
Eager passengers have until midnight (AEST) October 7 to make the bookings.
