The coastal line of our country is long, approximately 35,000km, and various forms such as a muddy beach, a sandybeach, a rocky beach and a cliff. The coastal area was very important area for our life, industry, transportation, etc. from ancienttime. It is important to understand "the mindscape" which a modern Japanese holds for coastal landscape because of the decrease of the natural coast and the terrible recreational use of the coastal area. In this study, it was intended to identify the structure ofcoastal “mindscape” and factors that would influence their mindscape. The questionnaire survey was conducted to graduate andundergraduate students from August to October 2010. The questionnaire was consisted with two main part, survey about figureof the coastal mindscape and individual background of respondents. As a result, the "sandy beach" and sea were the majorcomponent of mindscape. Because most respondents enjoyed sea bathing as recreational use, it was guessed that the viewpointfrom the beach were dominated and inland area, like coastal dune, was not described. About the mindscape of half respondents were influenced by real scenery they had seen, but the remaining respondents were influenced by some kind of media such asphotographs or TV programs.
