Abstract :Geotourism makes significant contributions to the missions of sustainable development as well as environmental conservation in geoscientific sites (geoparks). Geographical and geological education plays crucial roles in geotourism. Systematic education on physical geography, in particular, is able to nurture scientific interpreters, environmentally conscientious tourists and local politicians. The visitors benefit greatly from having guided tours that feature geoscientific interpretation enriched by comprehensive field observations viewed from physical geography. While the success of such educational programs depends primarily on having established courses of physical geography in both school and lifelong education programs, the present Japanese educational system is yet to respond to the international needs for geotourism.
