PositionAssociate Professor / Lecturer

Research AreaTourism Studies, Contents Tourism

Research Topic
Why do people travel? My research focuses on tourism induced by popular culture, called “contents tourism.” Contents tourism is a travel behavior motivated fully or partially by elements of popular culture forms, including film, television dramas, manga, anime, and novels. I am examining why people are visiting popular culture related places, and how destinations obtain the authenticity by contents tourism.

Message
Life is all about chances and opportunities, but “opportunity seldom knocks twice”. I am sure that IGS provides excellent opportunities to broaden your multicultural horizon, expand your knowledge, and discover new things.
