"There are a lot of Filipinos going to Japan but at the same time, there are a lot of Japanese coming here so that shows the real exchange between the cultures of the Filipino and Japanese people. We're now going into new products that I think the Japanese market will like," DOT Assistant Secretary for Tourism Development Planning Roberto Alabado III told reporters.

"We are actually intensifying our efforts to attract more Koreans, more Japanese by providing more tourism products. We are packaging more products that we know the Japanese will enjoy like health and wellness," he added.
As per data from the DOT show the numbers of Japanese visitors in 2019 reached 682,788, or an 8.07-percent increase from the 631,801 recorded in 2018.

Filipino arrivals to Japan also soared at around 610,000 last year from the 503,976 in 2018, Japanese Ambassador Koji Haneda said.
"Filipino travelers have been more immersed in Japan these days, exploring places off the beaten track even for Japanese. Now that the 10-year multiple-entry business visa and residency status 'specified skilled worker' have been in place, we look forward to having more Filipinos in Japan," he said.
The interest from both countries to stimulate two-way travel continues despite fears over the coronavirus disease 2019 outbreak.
