The expansion of Chinese tourists 

 The explosion of Chinese tourists abroad is very similar to how Japan's middle class was increasingly visible in the hotspots of the world following the appreciation of the yen in the 1980s. The latest statistics show that the weakness of the British pound after Brexit has contributed to the continuation of China's infatuation with London. The United Kingdom's growing popularity with the Chinese has been stimulated by the relaxation of visa rules and the extension of their term from six months to two years. As expected, Chinese visitors mainly visit London during the summer months, but also have a significant presence in the capital in January, when the Chinese New Year falls.

In fact, bookings are even bigger than last year, she said. The "explosive shopping explosions" for which the Chinese have become known, however, have been somewhat relaxed, said Aoshima.

As retailers, city dwellers and Japanese tourism authorities began to understand the opportunities and challenges associated with the growth of Chinese tourism, some malicious initiatives, and other successful initiatives have come to fruition. The Hokkaido Tourism Administration has begun distributing a Chinese-language flyer that tells Chinese visitors how not to behave during their travels in an attempt to mitigate their impact on local communities and has been ridiculed as condescending to Chinese visitors. Metropolitan Japan experienced a boom in retailers offering duty-free shopping, and Chinese-speaking staff soon began appearing on the floors of major and minor retailers, to guide Chinese visitors with their purchases. Japanese airports have begun to feel the competition and have started planning downtown duty-free shops to compete with the yen tax-free in China.
