McCartney, 71, left on a charter flight on Monday, they
added. No destination was given, but Japanese media said he had
headed for London.
"Paul McCartney himself hopes to return to Japan for more
concerts as soon as possible," the organizers said in a
statement, adding that this would be negotiated.
McCartney called off his sold-out Japan tour last week after
falling ill with a viral infection, much to the disappointment
of fans - some of whom had paid 100,000 yen ($980) to see him.
He later canceled a concert set for South Korea.
McCartney and drummer Ringo Starr are the two surviving members
of the Beatles, which Guinness has ranked as the world's
biggest-selling musical group, and which broke up in 1970.
A native of Liverpool who largely taught himself how to play,
McCartney has been known for a long and versatile musical life
that included a stint with the band "Wings" after the Beatles,
followed by a flourishing solo career.
