The number of visitors from China to Kyoto has decreased.
On the eve of the Chinese new year, which falls on the 10th of February, fewer visitors from mainland China are in Kyoto.
Territorial disputes over the Senkaku Islands is the main culprit, according to the Kyoto Shinbun newspaper.
In addition, the more modern attractions of Osaka and its easy accessibility of Kansai International Airport means that many Chinese visit Osaka - shop, visit Universal Studios Japan, eat - and then return to China without sampling Kyoto.
