This paper introduces our workshop on fieldwork using maps and conducts discussions regarding this in the university. In fact, using maps for fieldworkis not a new attempt. However, some problems exist in using maps that students have not sufficiently investigated as they are only interested in participant observation and interview methods. Briefly, students would gointo the field without much preparation, making it difficult for them to understand the essence of fieldwork. Therefore, we designed the workshop for building a strong “geographical imagination” and examined its effect.
