For each region, the respondents also gave their reasons accordingly.

Do you think so?

Osaka Prefecture (4.73%), Chiba Prefecture (3.47%), and Kyoto Prefecture (3.45%) are the next in 4th place, and are basically urban areas. The website speculates that this is due to the fact that many people’s travel is restricted during the epidemic and they can’t travel to and from big cities as easily as before.

Nagano prefecture (3.15%) ranked seventh and Shizuoka prefecture (2.76%) ranked eighth, with most of the reasons for wanting to go there being “hiking” or “hot springs”.
