Major airports in Japan are struggling to retain luggage inspectors due to low wages and long hours, leaving authorities concerned about anti-terrorism efforts ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

With the number of foreign visitors to Japan expected to continue its trend of record annual rises, in line with government policy and the expansion of low-cost carriers, Japanese airports have been planning further physical expansions.

Besides the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2020, Japan will also host the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
