This case study investigates students ’ inquiry-based learning process, by analyzing the relationship between their motivation for learning and learning-support environment. Qualitative methods were used to conduct a case study of one inquiry based learning class of 16 students in a high school with low prestige in Japan.  The results showed that 13 students out of 16 (81.3%) enjoyed learning, though they encountered various difficulties in inquiry process. Key factors of developing students'motivation for learning through inquiry based learning are : 1) the subject teacher and the school librarian's flexible and observant responses according to students'difficulties encountered in the inquiry process, 2)supportive friends, families and others, 3) adequate teaching strategies and materials and 4)free and open environment of school library and supportive school culture.
