Q: In 2020, the Olympic will be held in Japan. Does anybody know it is a great opportunity to promote Japan? It’s now or never. Harry up! Don’t miss it. Japan is actually still developing in tourism. It means a backward country. Why? Here are some problems that Japan need to deal with and examples based on developed countries.
Firstly, lack of workforce. This is because employees in Japan can only get a tiny salary. In contrast, Switzer land is well-paid. This kind of incentive motivates them. Moreover, the country is satisfied with specifically institutions in tourism. Students can learn how they attract tourists and push the place ahead. It is for growing not only their skills and abilities, but also consciousness and attitude. That’s why Swiss tend to be involved in tourism.
Secondly, are you sure that there are a lot of facilities for foreigners in Japan? Not at all. Hotels are not enough, transportations are poor and guidance is confusing. If you were tourist, you might be worried that your itinerary would really be well done. Singapore is one of a good instance. They succeeded as a completely artificial country. There is no tourist resource such as natural heritage or historic site. The number of tourists used to be 500,000 in 2003. Since Changi Air Port was established however, this figure has been doubled. The air port accommodates swimming pool, cinema, online game arcade and shopping mall. Buildings have been built one after another. Of course, it is easy to access. Therefore, it will increase more and more in the future.
Thirdly, you know nature can sometimes bring huge effect on tourism. According to Bhutan, you will see how important keep its environment clean is. Although tariff is a little bit expensive, tourist has been increasing year after year. Bhutanese regard the whole country as a national park. Its forest accounts for 72% because the government restricts it and Bhutanese are willing to follow so. The fact linked to dramatically growth in tourism. In Japan, dirty environment can caught their attention. Tokyo bay in particular is harmful to its ecosystem, too. Japan should face and manage it.
In conclusion, Japan should rely on world heritage, Yuru-Chara or imitation places no longer. All have to do is protect and restore something special. If there is only in Japan, it is natural to be popular.
soa natural?
A: With respect, this writing needs work. This is a first revision, if you could address my queries, I can take another look.

In 2020, the Olympics will be held in Japan. Does anybody know that this is a great opportunity to promote Japan? It is now or never. Hurry up! Don’t miss it!

The truth is, Japan's tourism industry is still nascent. In this aspect, it can be considered a backwards country. Why? Here are some problems that Japan needs to deal with. To illustrate my point, I provide some examples taken from other countries.

Workforce Issues
Firstly, workers in Japan are not well paid. In contrast, workers in Switzerland are well-paid. This type of incentives motivates workers [to do what?]. Moreover, the country has institutions specialising in the tourism industry. Students at these institutions can learn how the country can attract tourists and push the country ahead. It is not only about developing a worker's skills and abilities, but also their consciousness and attitude. This is why the Swiss tends to be involved in tourism. [This sentence is unclear, could you rephrase?]

Tourist Facilities
Secondly, are you sure that there are sufficient facilities for foreigners in Japan? This is not the case! The number of hotels we have is insufficient, our transportation system is poor and the guidance we provide to tourists is confusing. As a tourist, you are left wondering if your itinerary is good. Singapore is a good counter-example. As a completely artificial country, they have succeded [in doing what?]. They have no "natural" tourist resource such as natural heritage or historic sites. In 2003, the number of tourists who visited Singapore was 500,000. However, since Changi Airport was opened, this figure has since doubled. The airport has a swimming pool, a cinema, an online game arcade and a shopping mall. Buildings have been built one after another, all within easy to access. As such, the number of tourists visiting Singapore will only incresae.

Nature Tourism
Thirdly, nature can sometimes have a huge effect on tourism. If you look at Bhutan, you will see how important it is to keep a country's environment clean. Although the tariff [what tariff?] is a little high, the number of tourists visting Bhutan has increased year after year. The Bhutanese regard their whole country as a national park. Its forest accounts for 72% [of? the country's tourism revenue?] because the government protects it and Bhutanese are willing to support such measures. this is linked to the dramatic growth in tourism the country is experiencing. In Japan, our dirty environment has caught the Bhutanese's attention. For example, [Tokyo bay in particular is harmful to its ecosystem | this needs to be rephrased]. This is a problem that Japan will need to manage.

In conclusion, Japan should no longer rely on its heritage sites, Yuru-Chara or imitation places. It has to protect and preserve [something special | you need to take a look at this paragraph, I don't quite understand what you are trying to say]. [If there is only in Japan, it is natural to be popular | same, could you rephrase?].
