Japanese are Refusing Foreign Tourist Groups For Bad Behavior

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Fri Mar 08, 2019 12:24 pm

Japan is getting pretty sick of foreign visitors carrying on with unruly behaviour. So it’s laying down some very tough new rules.

Tourist sites in Japan are starting to refuse non-Japanese visitors because of their unruly behaviour and bad manners.

As locals become increasingly frustrated by the actions of foreign visitors, one particularly popular temple now has signs out the front, in a variety of languages, telling tourist groups they’re not welcome if they’re not Japanese, Japan’s Asahi Shimbun reports.

Foreign visitors to Japan reached a record high of 30 million last year, and that number is expected to be higher in 2019.

One of the fastest-growing nationality groups is from China, as a result of eased visa requirements and tax exemptions that make travel to Japan attractive.

While the Japanese government is keen to see annual visit numbers rise to 40 million by 2020, when Tokyo hosts the Olympic Games, locals are already complaining about hordes of bad-mannered tourists disrespecting sacred sites, behaving badly in pubs and generally interrupting them.

A pub owner in Kyoto, one of Japan’s biggest tourism drawcards, said he had started to tell groups of foreigners his venue was already full, even if it wasn’t.

Japan is leading the way. Many other parts in the world take similar steps because they totally disrespect everything. Their Motto is: we got the monies so we party and disrespect the way we want like pulling down pants at ankor wat and hugging a buddha statue etc.
This is nothing new like you can see here:
