It seems there are far fewer South Koreans travelling to Japan, than there are Japanese visitors to South Korea.
That's according to statistics from tourism authorities of both countries.
Since July, when Japan imposed trade restrictions targeting South Korean companies, which triggered a diplomatic rift, the number of tourists travelling between the two countries has decreased overall.
But the drop in the number of Korean visitors to Japan has fallen much more sharply, by more than 65 percent in October and November, compared to the 14 percent decrease in the number of Japanese tourists travelling to South Korea.
