Number of S. Korean tourists to Japan down 7.6% y/y in July amid trade row

TOKYO, Aug 21 (Reuters) - The number of South Korean tourists visiting Japan fell in July, government data showed on Wednesday, the latest evidence of frayed ties between the Asian countries amid an escalating trade dispute.

Tourist arrivals from South Korea dropped 7.6% to 561,700, from 607,953 in the corresponding month last year, the Japan National Tourism Organization said.

Overall tourist arrivals from countries worldwide rose 5.6% during the month, the monthly data showed. (Reporting by Meg Jones; Editing by Chris Gallagher)
