Gov. Scott to travel to Japan

Florida Gov. Rick Scott is heading to Japan this fall for a trade mission.

The Scott administration confirmed Friday that Scott will head to the Asian country in late October.

The trade mission is scheduled to last from Oct. 19 to Oct. 26. The trip, which is Scott's 10th trade-related trip abroad, will include visits to Toyko and Osaka, according to Enterprise Florida.

Scott traveled to the South American country of Chile earlier in May. He heads to Paris in June for an international air show. He has previously visited places such as Brazil, Colombia, Spain, Israel and England.

The governor has taken more trips abroad than former Gov. Charlie Crist.

Scott defends the trips as a way to open doors for Florida-based companies seeking business abroad.
