Many tourists recognize history and tradition as important tourist resources. But more important for modern tourists is not only “seeing” history and traditions, but also experiencing them as “at present”. For that purpose, the public and private sectors have to cooperate and develop a system that can utilize the local characteristics as tourist attractions. As one of them, we pointed out the importance of interpretation programs. The interpretation programs provide a point of contact between tourists and residents. This is a basis that promotes mutual understanding between residents and tourists.
