The major tourist spots in Japan are filled with the sightseers from all over the world.

Foreign tourists have finally returned to Japan, with the end of Covid-19 pandemic.  Thanks to a weak yen recently in particular, they can enjoy the cheap travels in Japan. The leading tourist spots in Tokyo, such as Asakusa, Shibuya and Tsukiji, are filled with the foreign sightseers who have gradually increased since the spring of 2023.  Osaka and Kyoto, the second largest metropolitan area in Japan, are the same.  The photo shows the main street of Doton-bori, a representative tourist spot in Osaka.  There are even more people than before the pandemic though, unlike Tokyo most tourists are somehow from Asian countries.  This place is known for the center of “kuidaore” meaning “gourmet foodie”, and is lined with a countless number of b-class restaurants such as takoyaki, okonomiyaki, ramen, etc.  The long queues of tourists form in front of the highly-reputed restaurants.
