Abstract

This study examines economic impact of tourism interaction on regions in Japan. We construct models that can grasp amount of inflow of tourism interaction and amount of tourism consumption as a direct economic impact of tourism interaction on regions. A tourism inflow model can express the difference between tourism factors of overnight trip and day trip. Tourism consumption per person in a destination region can be expressed by using attractiveness and geographical condition of the region as a tourism consumption model. From these models, it is quantitatively clarified that, as well as increasing an attractiveness of a region, improving information content and facilities of that region in addition to traffic convenience are important to promote internal tourism. Also, we examined the influence of improvement of information provision on tourism consumption and tourism inflow of a region by way of a simulation.
