In Japan, an increase in industrial tourism that makes uses the of regions’ special characteristics is expected, particularly in Chukyo, with its flourishing manufacturing industry. Specific visitors making such “technical visits” are provided with focused technical and professional information. However, the actual technical visit process has not been sufficiently clarified.
