A Sustainability Revolution Might Save the Industry

Tourists are Ruining EVERYTHING

By IGI Global on May 30, 2024
a globe covered in roads with hot air balloons and airplanes around it As global travel continues to surge, destinations worldwide are struggling to maintain the balance between promoting tourism and protecting the privacy and peace of their communities. Fujikawaguchiko, a Japanese town known for its impressive vantage point of Mount Fuji, recently built a 66-foot (20-meter) black “screen” to block the street view of the mountainside, hoping to discourage visitors from using the popular photo spot.
This action is a direct result of Japan’s unsustainable, over-crowded tourism issues, which have been on the rise ever since the country re-opened its borders to foreign tourists following the pandemic. The decision to erect the photo-blocking screen was met with international controversy, raising questions of what constitutes proper hospitality and tourism management protocol when sizable problems arise. Fujikawaguchiko’s approach to its overtourism emphasizes the complex nature of tourism issues that prevalent destinations face across the globe. While tourism can be a boon to economic prosperity, polite cultural exchange, and exposure to new perspectives, it can also lead to overcrowding, environmental destruction, and the exploitation of local culture.
Achieving Sustainable Transformation in Tourism and Hospitality Sectors (ISBN:9798369333907) provides policymakers, industry professionals, and management officials with the resources to navigate the complex landscape of sustainable tourism. The book offers a comprehensive examination into practical methods necessary for inclusive, responsible tourism, while highlighting community-based tourism, inclusive development, and sustainable employment. Through case studies, theoretical frameworks, and practical insights, this book provides readers with the tools needed to foster sustainability across all sides of the tourism and hospitality industry.
