HONOLULU, Hawaii — Japan’s travel industry has been on a rollercoaster ride this year.
While it’s been hit by a number of big travel events and major economic downturns, the country has also been rocked by a major earthquake and tsunami.
The earthquake and tsunamis that struck Japan this year also brought an influx of new arrivals and tourists to the country, which is still reeling from the devastating magnitude-7.1 earthquake that killed over 3,000 people in January.
Japan’s economy has been in a slump for several years, but its tourism industry has continued to thrive.
The number of foreign tourists has risen more than 50 percent in the past year, according to data from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI).
It’s also one of the top three tourist destinations in Japan, according TOEFL, the International Organization for Standardization.
“It’s a big economy.
But the tourists are coming in, and there are plenty of jobs,” said Takashi Iwamoto, a 40-year-old Japanese man who arrived in Honolulu two weeks ago and works at a Japanese hotel.
Iwamoto is one of about 400,000 foreign tourists who came to Japan in 2017, a number that’s likely to keep growing, according the METI.
The Japanese government has said it expects the tourism industry to grow at an average annual rate of 7 percent over the next five years.
But the government has also warned that many people are reluctant to return home due to safety concerns.
“There’s a real fear that it could be the end of the Japanese tourist industry,” said Hiroko Takeda, a METI researcher.
Japan is experiencing its own economic boom with a massive expansion of its tourism industries.
The country has been hit hard by a massive wave of earthquakes, which have killed more than 100,000.
Many people have moved to neighboring countries to escape the shaking.
Tokyo is Japan’s second-largest city, and it has been experiencing a huge influx of tourists since the earthquakes.
It has been the main destination for Japanese families traveling to the United States and Europe.
Tokyu, the oldest shopping mall in Japan that opened in 1972, is still a popular destination for tourists.
It’s now the second-most popular destination after Tokyo Disneyland, with more than 7 million visitors visiting in 2018, according METI data.
But as the tourist economy has grown, the city has also become a haven for those looking to live in relative safety.
In the early days, there were no official shelters in Tokyo, but they’ve since been expanded.
A hotel and a restaurant are among the newest developments in Tokyo.
The METI estimates that there are around 10,000 Japanese people living in Japan.
Tokyos construction company, Tatsumachi Co., has begun building a series of temporary shelters and apartments.
Many of the buildings will be built on the site of former Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) reactors.
The buildings will provide temporary housing for Japanese who have moved back to Japan from abroad, and those who are living in shelters.
Tetsuro Miyamoto, who moved to Japan about 10 years ago, said he doesn’t think the shelters will last much longer.
“We can’t stay in them forever.
We’ll need to move out,” Miyamoto said.
Miyamoto said he would prefer to live outside the city, but he believes the Japanese government will make it possible for him to return to Japan someday.
He has no plans to return any time soon.
Japan has been a major tourist destination for the past three decades.
Many tourists come from overseas to experience the country’s stunning scenery and cuisine, but there are also people from all over the world who come to Japan to work.
Japan hosts about one million foreign workers in its tourist industry, which employs about 6.5 million people, according Toei Animation.
About half of the people working in Japan’s tourist industry are foreign nationals.
