     View Summary

    © The Author(s) 2019. This article examines the local practices, histories, and transnational circulation and exchange of gender ideologies within Japanese surfscapes. A focus on gender in relation to Japanese surf culture is critical as the ways surf spaces in Japan are governed and/or have changed in recent years has as much to do with transnational gender surf ideologies as with its domestic gender norms. More specifically, we examine how gendered ideologies in Japan are mobilized in particular ways depending on the conditions of possibility—the cultural, social, geographical, historical, and networked elements—that comprise any given surfscape. To draw attention to the complexities involved in the relationship between space, place, and gender in Japan, the enquiry is undertaken in a highly localized, territorial, and big-wave surf site in Wakayama Prefecture and surrounding Kansai region. This site has been chosen because of how it localizes a unique mode of trans-Pacific surf culture, thereby offering insight into the nuances, issues, and strategies of social change as surfing continues to evolve in the region. The aim of the analysis is twofold. The first is contextual, highlighting the importance of the culturally and site-specific character of how surf culture and gender relations are assembled in the Japanese context. The second is to offer insight into the specific histories and transnational relationships informing the gendered practices of surfing in Japan today. The intention is to highlight the diversity of surf cultures throughout East Asia and the different ways surfing lifestyles are localized in relation to socio-political-ecological place-making and gender.

  • Lifestyle Sports in East Asia

    Clifton Evers, Adam Doering

    Journal of Sport and Social Issues ( SAGE PUBLICATIONS INC )  43 ( 5 ) 343 - 352   2019.10  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    © The Author(s) 2019. “Lifestyle sports” are not the preserve of occidental cultures, even though late capitalist Western nations dominate them commercially and ideologically. Examples of these sports are snowboarding, BASE jumping, freestyle BMX, mountain biking, bouldering, skateboarding, kiteboarding, rock climbing, parkour/free running, windsurfing, and surfing. Non-occidental cultures—such as those in Asia, Latin America, and Africa—also influence lifestyle sport institutions, commodities, values, and practices. Arguably, this influence is expanding and is accelerating as the populations of non-occidental cultures champion their interests and perspectives. This article makes a modest proposal for the starting of a targeted discourse among those interested in the cultural politics of lifestyle sports in the region of East Asia, an area with its own unique international and intra-regional interactions and concomitant needs, desires, and perspectives. In specific regard to this region, we argue it is worth asking: What are the stories being narrated and what forms do they take? How are complex social, political, cultural, and economic relations of this region being negotiated through lifestyle sports?

  • Exploring the introduction and usage of the English term DMO in major Japanese newspapers

    NAGAI Hayato, MAKINO Emi, KASHIWAGI Sho, DOERING Adam, YASHIMA Yuji

    JAFIT international tourism review ( Japan Foundation For International Tourism )  26 ( 0 ) 41 - 50   2019  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Destination management (or marketing) organizations (DMOs) have a long history, especially in the West. In Japan, however, anecdotal observation suggests that the term DMO was not part of the vocabulary of tourism practitioners or policy makers until the Japanese government adopted the concept in 2015 as a cornerstone of its new tourism policy. Since supporting evidence for this claim is limited, we quantify how the term DMO has proliferated in Japan through a content analysis of major Japanese newspapers, a common approach for studying the diffusion of novel concepts. Empirical results confirmed that the term began commonly appearing in newspaper articles in 2015. Coverage of Japanese DMOs has steadily increased since then, with the term DMO appearing prominently in the headlines quite frequently. The study demonstrates how a Western concept in tourism gains currency in contemporary Japan via the popular press. Future research agendas for this recent phenomena are also discussed.

  • The emergence of the DMO concept in Japan: Confusion, contestation and acceptance

    Hayato Nagai, Adam Doering, Yuji Yashima

    Journal of Destination Marketing and Management ( ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV )  9   377 - 380   2018.09  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    © 2018 Elsevier Ltd Destination marketing and/or management organizations (DMOs) have been acknowledged as an essential component of the tourism system. However, the ability of DMOs to manage and coordinate destination development in contemporary society is now being questioned by scholars. The focus of this regional spotlight is Japan, a country that has recently turned to tourism as the tool to facilitate economic growth. The paper examines the early emergence of the registered DMO program introduced by the Japanese government in 2015, with a particular focus on how the concept of DMO is being adopted and understood by tourism practitioners at local tourism destinations across the country. Offering insights into the ways the concept of DMO is understood, experienced and employed in Japan, a non-Western context, the paper contributes to the international debate concerning the future role of DMOs globally.
