A huge proportion of Taiwan's population must visit Japan each year.

Well Taiwan has a population of 23.5m, and since southern Japan is just 1200km (the islands are even closer) I imagine it's quite easy to get to by boat or plane. So if we say 2.3m of that 4.2m above are unique visitors, then that gives at least 10% of total population visiting each year.

Nice spot!

The last few islands of okinawa are about 60km away from Taiwan but the international flights leave from okinawa's main island more like 300km away but still not so far. Not so easy to get there by boat (i've tried!). There are roughly 10 flights a day from Naha, Okinawa which means around 500k visitors do that route assuming they are all unique. The majority must be going to the mainland (probably Tokyo). ps , nice quiz!

Speaking of visitors to Japan per capita, Hong Kong could be even higher, at about 35% of them travel to Japan annually

Wow, amazing percentages. Living in a huge country like I do, I guess I don't realize how common int'l travel is for people from smaller countries.

I think it's probably fewer unique visitors, as some people in Taiwan visit Japan multiple times per year, some monthly or weekly.

There are a lot of budget airlines now that fly between Taipei and Japan. I was actually very surprised when I researched our trip to Japan to see these flights were so cheap and abundant.

why no hong kong tho? it has quite a significant visitor amount to Japan. i mean like even though not a country, it is quite a significant visitor population, couldnt be neglected. maybe the title should do countries/regions that visit japan the most to avoid political misconception
