 Abstract
A landmark is a representative image of a given region that impresses distinct regional characteristics upon visitors. As such, there is a need for each local government to develop a symbolic landmark. We investigated examples of landmark development intended to promote regional revitalization in hopes to provide a basic guideline for developing future landmarks, related tourism products, and tourism promotion policy. Aomori prefecture in Japan was selected as a site for a field study. For a long time, Japan has tried to internationalize and revitalize its provincial regions by establishing various tourism policies. In order to foster the tourism industry in rural areas that are behind in development, Aomori prefecture sought to promote local revitalization through the development of tourism products and cultural space centered on a landmark. Based on this example, we can summarize the conditions for successful landmark development as follows. First, in deciding on the symbolism or the design of a landmark, we must fully investigate and understand the given region and invest sufficient time and funds. Second, we must consider the accessibility of the landmark and make sure its surroundings can also serve as a tourist attraction element. Third, in order to increase the value of visiting a landmark, it is important to provide a variety of things to see and enjoy both inside and outside of the landmark, which can be achieved through continuous operation and management of amenities and diverse programs.
