HONG KONG -- Hong Kong-based travel booking site Klook plans to enter the Japanese market in the first half of 2019, looking to cash in on Japan's popularity as a tourist destination and to serve the needs of Japanese travelers.

Japan is already the top destination on the Klook website. Now the "unicorn" -- an unlisted startup worth $1 billion or more -- is turning its attention to Japan's lucrative outbound travel market.
