The ratio of no plan in the Golden Week holiday period 2016 reaches 45% - Creative Japan survey

The latest survey on the Golden Week holiday period 2016, conducted by Creative Japan, a online researcher two weeks earlier (April 16 to 20), finds that the ratio of people with plans was just 7.9% of the total, while the ratio of people with no plan reached 44.6%. The result may show that it is possible for a leisure or travel industry to receive last-minute bookings.


Among people with plans, the most answered plans were ‘work (30.4%),’ followed by homecoming (15.9%)’ and ‘overseas travel (14.5%).’ About ten percent answered not going out.

Among people with no plan, the most supposed activity was ‘not going out (44.4%),’ ‘work (15.5%),’ ‘travel in Japan (5.7%)’ and ‘staying home to watch movies (5.2%).’

The most reason for not going out was ‘overcrowding anywhere (40%),’ followed by ‘not going out inherently (24.2%),’ ‘spending a time to watch TV or movies (10.2%)’ and ‘enjoying gaming or reading comics (3.4%).’
