Ahead of Japan’s Golden Week period this year, reservations for Japanese tourists to visit Jeju Island have increased rapidly.

On the 4th, Nippon Keizai reported that HIS, a large Japanese travel agency, counted the reservation status and found that the overseas travel destination with the most reservations for this year’s Golden Week was Seoul, just like last year.

Taipei, Taiwan, and Hawaii, USA, followed suit. In addition, in the case of Jeju Island, reservations increased 15 times compared to last year, and Hong Kong also increased 4.5 times.

In Japan, from the end of April to May, there are many public holidays such as Showa Day (April 29), Constitution Day (May 3), Green Day (May 4), and Children’s Day (May 5). The period until the beginning of the year is called the Golden Week.

The number of Japanese people who booked overseas trips for this year’s Golden Week holiday increased by 23% compared to the previous year. It is interpreted that the resumption of international flights due to the first golden holiday since COVID-19 began to be classified as a level 5 infectious disease like seasonal flu has increased the demand for overseas travel.

However, this year, there are three weekdays without a weekend from April 29 to May 3, so it is considered difficult to take a long vacation compared to previous years. The average travel days were 6 days, one day shorter than 7 days last year.

Additionally, as the burden of travel costs has increased due to the weakening yen and rising airfares, demand for overseas travel is expected to flock to nearby Asia, Nihon Keizai reported.
