An exploratory study of environmental values and beliefs of Japanese adventure tourists in Hawaii.e-review of tourism research (2005)
Adventure tourism and eco-tourism are becoming increasingly popular among travelers over the world. This case study identifies environmental perceptions of a random sample of Japanese (adventure) tourists on the Island of Oahu, Hawaii. The modified New Environmental Paradigm (NEP) scale (Dunlap & Van Liere, 1978) was utilized to measure environmental perceptions of travelers. Despite the small sample size, the data provided a general socio-demographic profile of Japanese adventure tourists, and their environmental perceptions. Study findings may serve to support resource management decisions for the development of adventure tourism that is believed to become a significant niche market in Hawaii.
