In tourism accommodation statistics, accuracy (variance and bias) is fundamental. However, minimizing both the variance and bias of the estimate is a challenge due to the trade-off between the two. In many countries, tourism accommodation statistics, which popularly developed with the unbiased linear estimator, are less accurate. This study recomme...

In Japan, traffic congestions often occur on the expressways connecting tourism areas with the Tokyo metropolitan area. This congestion can be mitigated if tourists delayed their departure of homeward trips to avoid peak traffic hours. A potential method to promote staggered departure times is providing the estimates of near-future traffic congesti...

The objective of this paper is to rate pedestrian facilities in Malacca World Heritage Site using Pedestrian Index (P-Index) method. P-Index has four indicators to assess pedestrian facilities namely mobility (M), safety (S), facility (F) and accessibility (A). The two stars rating for pedestrian facilities in Malacca WHS can be interpreted as unfa...
Article
Foreign tourists would need support in a time of disaster due to a lack of the knowledge for disaster risks and communication skill in Japanese. This study aims to clarify differences between the spatial structure of regional disaster prevention and tourists' activity areas and to find effective way to guide their evacuation. Target area is central...
Article
This study aims to identify the elements that characterise spaces for tourists and those that characterise spaces for locals in a shopping district based on the perspectives of local students. Forty-five local undergraduates took photographs of settings that impressed them in the shopping district in Naha-shi, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan, and the rea...
