Political relations between countries can potentially affect and be affected by bilateral visitor flows. Applying various modified Granger causality tests, this article uses Japan and China as a case study of the possible bi-directional linkages between tourism demand and political relations. Findings suggest that country relations do influence visitor flows, but not vice versa. The influence is statistically strong regarding visitor flows from China to Japan, but is weak and insignificant in the opposite direction, although this relationship appears to be time-varying and strengthening recently. This article concludes with a discussion of policy implications and some suggestions for further research.
