■ Current research
■area of expertise:Tourism planning, tourism resource evaluation, universal tourism, tourism human resources
Tourism is changing as society matures, and not only traditional tourism resources such as nature and historical culture, but also the way of life and people rooted in the community itself are increasingly recognized as attractive tourism resources. I am always conscious of "what it is" and "why it is so," and have a desire to learn, act, and deepen my investigation and research together with local people who are the main actors in tourism town development. I would like to deepen my research and contribute to the creation of attractive tourist destinations.
