Japan Online Travel Traffic Report
Japan boasts the world's third biggest economy, and the largest online travel market in Asia Pacific (APAC). However, a devastating earthquake and tsunami struck the nation in March 2011, challenging the country's overall economy and major industries, including travel. Yet despite the disruption caused by this natural disaster, some travel websites continued to perform well, in terms of both traffic and gross bookings. Phocuswright has partnered with global digital intelligence provider comScore to measure and analyze Web traffic in Japan within the travel category.
Phocuswright's Japan Online Travel Traffic Report analyzes traffic volume, unique visitors, cross-visitation and source/loss patterns across key travel subcategories, including online and traditional travel agencies, airlines, hotels, travel information websites, metasearch and more. The report explores traffic patterns across a range of leading travel websites (pre- and post-earthquake), revealing sector-specific dynamics that are unique to Japan's online travel marketplace.
Key topics include:
- In-depth analysis of traffic to travel website categories for the 15-month period ending in July 2011, including:
