Third-Year Goto Studio Members Achieve Remarkable Triumph: Attainment of Distinction at “Student Research Presentation Event”

Members of the third-year Goto Studio (seminar) have garnered the prestigious “Excellent Award” at the Student Research Presentation Event, an esteemed initiative orchestrated by the Student Liaison Council.

This notable accomplishment stands as a significant milestone, securing the second position among 14 distinguished teams meticulously chosen from esteemed universities across the Kansai region, specializing in the realm of tourism studies.

Their presentation centered around the imperative theme of “Towards Mitigating Overtourism: Directing Visitors to Analogous Tourist Destinations.” In response to the pervasive global challenge of over-tourism, they judiciously delineated analogous tourist destinations as “resemblant tourist locales” and conducted meticulous research to outline methodologies for guiding visitors thereto. The team conscientiously examined renowned locales such as Arashiyama and Pontocho in Kyoto, Miyajima in Hiroshima, and Chinatown in Yokohama, serving as paradigms for their comprehensive study and presentation.

The discernible significance of the theme, coupled with the unique strategy of guiding visitors towards “resemblant tourist locales,” elicited commendation from the adjudicators.

Heartfelt congratulations are extended to the esteemed recipients on this meritorious achievement!
