■演習テーマ / Theme
Perceptions of host communities and visitors in Japanese tourism development
Japan tourism development has experienced an exponential growth in the past years. The hosting of Rugby World Cup (2019), Olympics in Tokyo (2020) and World Expo in Osaka (2025) are expected to escalate further growth in tourist arrival. As in all tourism development, a sustainable industry is essential to support the economic activities of the country. Local communities’ perceptions of tourists and their participation in tourism development are essential to drive a sustainable growth. This course furnishes students with greater understanding of tourism as an increasingly important economic activity for Japan, in addition to the need to mitigate any negative impacts as an outcome of such growth.
