It is already relatively expensive to travel on holiday, but if you're planning a trip to Japan, now you need to put a little extra money aside to be able to afford to travel home again.

From today, the popular holiday destination in fact demand an extra tax for anyone leaving the country - regardless of their nationality.

This writes the Japan Times.

Fortunately, the new tax to overcome, as it will only cost travelers 1000 yen per person, which corresponds to about 61 Danish kroner, but 61 dollars yet can run up if you are a big family off on holiday.

Therefore, awakens the treasure also concern in the japanese tourism sector:

- Vacationers are always looking for the cheapest travel, so even if it's only 1000 yen, prices will hit us hard, say a japanese tour operator to the local media and get the backing of økonomiprofessor Hideaki Tanaka:

- It is necessary to make sure that the money is not being spent on trivial things, but on areas which the taxpayers find real, he says to the Japan Times.

the Tax was announced already back in april 2018, but will enter first in force from today. It will mean that everyone who leaves the country, will be demanded 1000 yen in addition to the price of their plane ticket, ferry ticket or the like.

the Entire 30 million tourists visited Japan in 2018, which is the highest number ever, but the japanese authorities are not happy and have therefore set a goal to accept nothing less than 40 million tourists in 2020, when Tokyo will host the Summer OLYMPICS.

The japanese authorities have previously stated that among other things, they will use the revenue from the tax to create more areas for tourists, so the country can take against the many more visitors.

According to the Japan Times, travellers leaving Japan less than 24 hours after arrival get rid of paying the extra tax. The same applies for children under two years of age.
