Departmental Bulletin Paper The Shuku river tourism geography project

JACKSON, John  ,  ジャクソン, ジョン

This paper reports the methodology and results of a collaborative student ecotourism project undertaken through research and fieldwork using the Shuku river and the immediate environs surrounding the university campus as a case study in the preservation and appreciation of local resources and for potential ecotourism enterprises in the Nishinomiya area. From the source of the Shuku river to its mouth, students observed a broad spectrum of geographical and topographical features, witnessed first-hand both the degradation and restoration of natural resources and discussed methods in which to address environmental damage and promote sustainable tourism. Through this project, students were encouraged to explore the means of stimulating local business and enterprise whilst fostering interest in historic heritage and cultural assets in the vicinity of Otemae University.
