Asia -  Tokyo, Japan

Tourist arrivals into Japan seem to be defying sluggish growth of its economy having achieved record levels in 2014 and 2015. Given its best-in class infrastructure, connectivity and a weakening Yen against major global currencies has made Japan one of the preferred tourist destinations around the globe. The capital city, and port of entry for majority of the tourists, Tokyo, has benefitted most due to the uptrend in passenger movements. The high cost of real estate that acts as a substantial barrier to entry coupled with surging demand has put Tokyo in the spotlight for hotel investors. This was clearly evident as the city saw a noticeable increase in hotel transactions and overall value in 2015 compared to previous years. As per HVI, in local currency, the city saw an increase of almost 39% in valuation in 2015 over that in 2014; however, the return in USD was reduced to almost half after factoring in the depreciation of the Yen.
