||Estimating preferences for pricing policies in Japanese national parks using best-worst scaling
||Monitoring and Management of Visitor Flows in Recreational and Protected Areas – ABSTRACT BOOK
||MMV 8 - Proceedings
||The purpose of this study is to understand preferences of the general Japanese public for pricing policies in the national park system applying the best-worst scaling (BWS) approach. One remarkable feature of Japanese national parks is that the most of costs for park services have traditionally financed not by visitors but by general taxpayers. Recently, however, the Japanese government has faced a serious financial shortage, each national park faces revenue shortfalls. In the near future, we need some fundamental changes in Japanese parks system on pricing policies. We have to know general Japanese citizens’ preferences for them.
