  • To our overseas customers
  • Inbound tourism to Japan is enjoying a period of unprecedented growth thanks to a combination of several factors such as: a significant easing of visa restrictions; more generous duty-free discounts for tourists on household electrical appliances, clothes, accessories and food and drink products; the favorable yen exchange rate; and the advent of low-cost carriers (LCC). Right On is working on initiatives that will enable us to capitalize on the tourism boom, such as foreign language services in-store.
