Departmental Bulletin Paper A Functional Study on Tourism Associations in Japan

山本, 真嗣

  This study examines Japanese tourism associations and the roles and functions they serve in their local regions. A tourism association is a membership organization consisting of members who engage in the regional tourism industry. Its principal purpose is to attract visitors to the region. I considered the function of the organization through past studies and documents published by tourism associations in Japan. Tourist associations have three functions―economic, political, and social―and play an instrumental role in the tourism industry.
