In recent years, the tourism industry has drawn attention as a means to revitalize cities. In this paper, when using local gourmet as tourist attractions, we examined a method to measure its activity quantitatively. Since we thought that the spatial accumulation of restaurants that served local cuisine would influence regional revitalization after the previous research, we analyzed the points of addresses of local cuisine gourmet restaurants using spatial statistics. As a result, in many cities the local gourmet stores are not located spatially randomly. It can be classified into three groups of locating such as gathering in one place, sitting to a certain distance, and gathering in multiple places. We can also compare and classify cities with regard to similar store placement.
