Okinawa expects to restore incoming tourists well even after the Golden Week holiday period

Okinawa Convention and Visitors Bureau (OCVB) announced its forecast to increase incoming tourists for the first three months of FY2022 (April to June 2022) by 113.7% year on year to 1,187,000, although the figure is still 51.7% fewer tourists than two years ago. 

For this year’s Golden Week period (April 29 to May 8), OCVB has estimated that incoming visitors may reach 212,934, much more than 81,711 a year ago. According to the booking status, the occupancy rates were higher in remote islands than in mainland Okinawa.
