Japan: Opportunities Growing for Wine in Japan
This report highlights trends and recent statistics for U.S. origin wine imported into Japan, consumption trends, and opportunities for U.S. exporters. Now, in year five of the U.S.-Japan Trade Agreement (USJTA), tariffs are on the path to significant reductions for bottled wine, semi-bulk wine, and sparkling wine. Tariffs were eliminated altogether on bulk wines and fortified wines on April 1, 2023. In 2022, U.S. wine exports to Japan totaled $144 million and are the fifth largest supplier of wine to Japan.
