TOKYO -- Long labeled expensive, Japan is now drawing attention for its low prices.

Take Tokyo Disney, which has become a popular tourist destination in part because of its relative cheapness. One adult single-park ticket for same-day entry cost the equivalent of $69 on Oct. 31 -- barely more than half the $129 price tag at Disneyland in California and the cheapest for that date of the six Disney resorts examined by Nikkei, including locations in Paris and Shanghai.
