Abstract

本稿の目的は,訪日教育旅行の目的地としての東京都の特性を,受入態勢と外国人児童生徒の観光行動の分析を通して明らかにすることである。東京都ではインバウンド対応の一環として,2007年以降訪日教育旅行を受け入れている。東京都には約80もの受入先の学校が存在し,比較的安定した訪日教育旅行の受容基盤が確保されていた。東京都が受け入れている訪日教育旅行の特性は,実施形態や行程内容から欧米豪,台湾を除くアジア,台湾に大別して説明することができた。また,訪日教育旅行の実施において,東京都は多様な企業や都市型観光資源が集積するため,企業見学やレジャー目的の都市観光を実施するうえで優位性を発揮していた。しかし,東京都だけでは訪日教育旅行のニーズ全てに対応することができず,東京都が受け入れている訪日教育旅行であっても,その周遊範囲は広域的であることが指摘された。

The purpose of this study is to clarify the characteristics of international educational travel in Tokyo through an analysis of the acceptance system and tourist behaviors of foreign students. This study began by explaining the trend of international educational travel in the main foreign markets. Next, the study analyzed the acceptance system and current situation of international educational travel in Tokyo, focusing on actual tourism statistics and then describing international exchange opportunities for students. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government organized the council for promoting international educational travel in 2007 to advance international exchange among the young generation, promote international mutual understanding, and increase the number of foreign tourists; the Tokyo Convention and Visitors Bureau has accepted a total of 195 groups. Tokyo has the largest number of schools in Japan, offering a wealth of activity and cultural exchange options for foreign visitors and to accommodate the diverse interests and goals of student visitors. Additionally, as a major transport hub, Tokyo provides convenient access to many popular tourist resources and facilities around the metropolitan area, as well as to other regions, which allows visitors to experience Japanese nature, culture, history, and society in various locales. Tokyo has significant advantages over other regions, such as its agglomeration of major companies and prominent urban tourism resources that open up tourism and student exchange opportunities beyond the Tokyo metropolitan area and improve inbound tourism specifically in terms of international educational travel in Japan. Thus, international educational travel to Tokyo often comprises tourism and student exchange opportunities beyond the Tokyo metropolitan area.
