Spending by foreign visitors in Japan is expected to set a new record this year, as it had already reached ¥3.28 trillion ($29.1 billion) through September, the Japan Tourism Agency said Wednesday.

The pace is on course to shatter the record ¥3.75 trillion spending set last year, sustained by the fastest pace of increase in the number of foreign visitors that exceeded the 20 million mark in mid-September, according to the agency.
