Japanese health and safety signage will be installed at a train station in the Cotswolds to reflect the growing importance of Asian tourism to the area.

Directional signage - to buses, taxis and hotels - and welcome signs have been put up at Moreton Station, the Cotswold Journal reports.

A recent British exhibition in Osaka saw Japanese visitors part with £1.5 million in 10 days on Cotswold-themed products, including cream teas and puddings, the newspaper said.

Teresa Ceesay, Moreton Station's manager, decided to erect the signage after noticing the influx of Japanese tourists.

"The Cotswolds is so well promoted in Japan. It's just to help tourists when they arrive," she told the newspaper.

"The signs are only at Moreton because they tend to come into Moreton to go to Bourton and Stow. The Japanese tourists love Chipping Campden," she added.

According to, the Cotswolds is the number one area outside London for Japanese visitors.
