Sustainability of tourism in Japanese islands, FUNCK Carolin, ADEWUMI Ifeoluwa Bolanle, 2017/03/28, Without Invitation, Association of Japanese Geographers, Tsukuba University, This presentations aims to assess sustainability of island tourism in Japan. In most Japanese islands, coastal tourism has not developed to the same degree as in other countries. However, recent years have seen an increase in diverse forms of tourism like ecotourism or art tourism. From three examples, Yakushima island, Miyajima island and Naoshima island, we aim to test indicators suggested by the UNWTO in 2004 and suggest a model for sustainability evaluation.
