Japan popular destination among Chinese Tourists #Why?

The number of tourist visits increased by more than 120 million over 10 years, according to a new projection.
Golden Week in China and Japan tourism statistics

Golden Week in China begins tomorrow to celebrate the National Day, the day when the Communists took power officially, which means at least two things: the disappointing economic news will stop for a week as the country stops for the holidays and Chinese tourists will flood the international airports in the biggest week for travel abroad.

Four million Chinese are planning to travel abroad, an increase of 11% percent from last year, according to “The Book”, a news site run by the state. Despite China’s stock market bubble bursting and an industry in recession, travel figures are the latest evidence that Chinese consumers are not influenced by large sometimes disastrous titles on China’s economy.
A larger number of Chinese traveling abroad is one of the unassailable world trends. Before, Chinese were either too poor to travel abroad or prohibited by a paranoid government to go abroad. Now they head abroad in droves. Fortune focused on the Chinese wave come to the United States two years ago. Chinese tourists spend about $ 6,000 in America, most of all visitors were expected, and trips to increase by 259% between 2011 and 2017; in the first quarter of this year visitors increased 19% to 560,000.
The number of Chinese tourists traveling abroad should increase by 116 million last year to about 242 million in 2024, said CEIC. “That’s almost all of Indonesia hit the beach in a single year, or Germany, Iran and Egypt combined,” Japan Official Tourism bureau

This year, China will increasingly go to Japan, taking advantage of the weakness of the yen, as they cut their trips that used to be the Hong Kong rigor destination.

But the explanation is more propaganda than truth. Chinese Internet companies and government regulators censored much of Hong Kong protest coverage as happened last fall. Photos disappeared, cats were blocked and videos banned in mainland China. In addition, Hong Kong shopping areas returned to normal shortly after the protesters left.
Instead, the HBSC survey said the sharp drop in the number of Chinese travelers to Hong Kong is caused by three other reasons, including new restrictions on cross-border travel for day visitors on shopping excursions, a strengthening the Hong Kong dollar and Chinese travelers begin to be more adventurous in their choice of destination.
This includes Japan, which can accommodate the most anti-mainland sentiment of all countries, but politely greets Chinese travelers. Recent trip to China, he climbed




3D printing technology for glass

The advanced 3D printing technology allows us to quickly create various objects, including buildings and the actual car, but one of the more unusual uses for 3D printing could be the creation of glass objects to Using a unique model of the 3D printer. Scientists at MIT have already figured out how to molten glass through a 3D printer and published a video that shows the fascinating process of creating objects using this particular material.

Mediated Matter Group has developed an G3DP system that is capable of printing various glass layer produced by layer. The printer seems to work like that other 3D printer that can print real houses, but using glass is an even more exciting experience.

be heated to 1900 degrees

Firstly, in fact the shape of the objects, the glass must be heated to 1900 degrees Fahrenheit. The 3D printer then poured substance, resembling honey at this stage, in a predefined schema. Once the object is printed, it must be cooled, at which point it will be perfectly transparent, just like any other glass product made using traditional glass blowing techniques.

3D printed glass creations

Some 3D printed glass creations will be exhibited at MIT next year Cooper Hewitt Design Museum Smithsonian, Popular Science reports.

Meanwhile, more details on this particular glass manufacturing technology are available on the links from the source, in case you want to start printing your 3D glass ashtrays and vases. The video showing the 3D printing process glass into action follows below.
