egtmedia59The estimated number of people who visited Japan in May jumped 31.2 pct from a year before to 875,400, topping 800,000 for the first time in the month, the Japan National Tourism Organization said Wednesday.

The figure, which represents a year-on-year increase for the fourth straight month, was the third-highest monthly total ever, after 923,000 marked in April 2013 and 878,582 in July 2010, the organization said.

The weakening yen boosted the number of visitors from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Thailand.
