Abstract

The focus of this study is in two points. One is constructing a simulation model of tourists' excursion behavior considering scheduling. The other is proposal of an evaluation method for the activity simulation model. To explain the characteristics of the touring behavior, a model of activity sequence was developed. In this model, it is assumed that tourists choose a combination of visit areas and then select the first and the last spot independently. We developed a simulation model for whole tourist behavior using other several models and showed its result. We also develop an evaluation indicator for the model system. This indicator is based on the reenactment of activity patterns. We concluded the model system we proposed could simulate the behavior well under a specific situation.
