Abstract

本稿の目的は,近年注目の集まりつつある都市観光(urban tourism)について,熊本市の都心の集客施設への来訪者の行動から,観光行動についての空間的特性とその規定要因を明らかにすることである。調査対象は,中心市街地およびそれに隣接し,熊本市の観光入込客数の上位に含まれる主要な集客施設である。分析は,熊本市内および熊本市外の2つの地域スケールについて行い,さらに,数量化III類によって両者の行動の関係およびその規定要因を検討した。分析の結果,熊本市は,熊本県内周遊,九州横断,および九州周遊という3つの主要な旅行ルートによって,階層的な観光流動に組み込まれていることが明らかになった。また,熊本市内における行動について,トリップ数の増加に伴い,行動が多様化し,さらに行動空間も拡大することが示された。さらに,現地への滞在時間の増大または来訪経験の増加によって,滴下効果が生じ,ツーリストの卓越する施設に加えてレクリエーショナリストの卓越する施設への来訪行動が現れることが確認された。

The purpose of this study is to examine the spatial behavior of visitors to the TBD (Tourism Business District) in Kumamoto City. It attempts to analyze the behavior of visitors on different scales. First, the relationship among destinations is examined using the concept of the "tourist system" in order to understand the inter-destination travel pattern. Second, the intra-destination travel pattern is shown by the difference in the number of trips made in Kumamoto city. Third, a correspondence analysis, using the "Theory of the Quantification Type 3", was conducted to establish the relationship between visitors' attitudes and their behaviors. The results are summarized as follows: 1. Kumamoto City has different rules on three travel patterns: circuit trips in Kumamoto Prefecture, travels across Kyushu Island, and round trips in Kyushu Island. In any case, Kumamoto City is rarely a base for overnight stays. 2. Multi purpose trips in Kumamoto City contribute to the diversification of visitor behavior and the expansion of behavior space. There is a strong tourist flow between Kumamoto Castle and Suizenji Park if individual visitors have the small number of trips within the city. In the case of visitors with the more trips, however, the flow between these two places is less and different flows can be observed. 3. Visitor behavior within Kumamoto City is affected by the length of stay in the city and tourists' previous visits to Kumamoto City. Tourists are subject to a "trickle down effect", where they are likely to move from famous tourist facilities to recreational ones.
