The scale of the travel market for Muslims was 151 billion dollars in 2015, accounting for 11.2% of the world market, and it is forecast to expand to 243 billion dollars in 2021. The number of international travelers visiting Japan in 2017 was about 440,000 from Malaysia, 12% up year over year, and about 350,000 from Indonesia, 30% up year over year. This shows that an increasing number of Muslim people in some countries in Asia are more likely to travel to Japan, raising the needs of welcoming Muslims in accordance with their religion in Japan.*2
