  • In search of light: Ecohumanities, tourism and Fukushima's post-disaster resurgence

    Adam Doering, Kumi Kato (Part: Lead author )

    In Higgins-Desbiolles, Doering, & Bigby (Eds). Socialising Tourism: Rethinking Tourism for Social and Ecological Justice     175 - 194   2021  [Refereed]  [Invited]

     View Summary

    In its simplest form the Japanese character (hikari) means light. The character is also included in the compound (kanko), meaning tourism or more literally “to see the light”. In this chapter, we approach post-disaster Fukushima in search of new light. Situating human-environment relations at the centre of our analysis, our aim is to illuminate the creativity of people and communities whose care and compassion animates the ongoingness of life as they seek to reconnect with their lands and seas. Inspired by the ecohumanities, we offer an affirmative, creative and exploratory ethos/methodology for scholars and practitioners of socialising tourism to consider, drawing attention to the importance of this life-affirming approach for post-disaster tourism environments. To give texture to this discussion, we share stories of how Fukushima communities are rebuilding a sense of dwelling with the land and sea in two settings: the creative and artistic tourism undertaken in central Nakadori Region around Iitate Village and the post-disaster surf tourism developments at Kitaizumi Beach in Minamisoma City. We argue that in addition to situating people and communities at the centre of tourism decision-making, similar attention needs to be paid to the often invisible, fragile and yet foundational relations between people and their lands and seas if we hope to build more ecologically just tourism futures.

  • Mobilizing stoke: A genealogy of surf tourism development in Miyazaki, Japan

    Doering, A. (Part: Lead author )

    In R. Sharpley & K. Kato Tourism Development in Japan: Themes, Issues and Challenges ( ROUTLEDGE JOURNALS, TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD )  15 ( 1 ) 102 - 118   2020  [Refereed]  [Invited]

     View Summary

    © 2017 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group. This article presents a genealogy of domestic surf tourism development in contemporary Japan. Drawing on two months’ ethnographic fieldwork conducted between July and August 2016, and participant observation during three years working, living and surfing in the area, I trace the historical production of one of Japan’s most prominent surf tourism destinations, Miyazaki Prefecture. Detailing the convergence of surfing culture and tourism development from 1930 to 2016, I examine how surf tourism came to be mobilised in Miyazaki as a tool for revitalising the local economy. The article then addresses three important transformations of the Japanese seascape surf tourism development invites: the feminisation of surf capital, global cultural gentrification and the reinforcement of urban–rural disparities. The article concludes with a reflection on how surf tourism development may (dis)connect local surfing communities and identify areas for future research concerning surf destination development leading up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

  • Performative nationalism in Japan’s inbound tourism television programmes: YOU, Sekai! (The World), and the tourism nation

    Adam Doering, Tsz Hei (Terrance) Kong (Part: Lead author )

    In Hideki Endo (Ed.) Understanding Tourism Mobilities in Japan     138 - 157   2020  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    This chapter examines how inbound tourism offers a familiar yet new context for understanding the complexities and contradictions of national identity and nationalism in the context of Japan’s tourism nation-building efforts. Over the past decade international inbound tourism has garnered unprecedented attention by the Japanese national government and is now recognised as a major pillar of the economic growth strategy and a critical industry for facilitating rural and regional revitalization. For much of the twentieth century tourism was not a national priority for the Japanese government. The launch of the Visit Japan Campaign in 2003 marked the beginning of a national branding strategy to encourage inbound tourism, initially aiming to attract 10 million international tourists annually by 2010. A close reading of Japan’s governmental policy between 2003 and 2016 reveals that inbound tourism is as much about national cultural revitalisation as it is economic.

  • Maintaining Masculinities in Japan’s Transnational Surfscapes: Space, Place, and Gender

    Adam Doering, Clifton Evers

    Journal of Sport and Social Issues ( SAGE PUBLICATIONS INC )  43 ( 5 ) 386 - 406   2019.10  [Refereed]

     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.

    Socialising Tourism: Rethinking Tourism for Social and Ecological Justice     xxix - xxx   2021.01

  • Socialising Tourism: Rethinking Tourism for Social and Ecological Justice

    Freya Higgins-Desbiolles, Adam Doering, Bobbie Chew Bigby

    Socialising Tourism: Rethinking Tourism for Social and Ecological Justice     1 - 264   2021.01

     View Summary

    Once touted as the world’s largest industry and also a tool for fostering peace and global understanding, tourism has certainly been a major force shaping our world. The recent COVID-19 crisis has led to calls to transform tourism and reset it along more ethical and sustainable lines. It was in this context that calls to “socialise tourism” emerged (Higgins-Desbiolles, 2020). This edited volume builds on this work by employing the term Socialising Tourism as a broad conceptual focal point and guiding term for industry, activists and academics to rethink tourism for social and ecological justice. Socialising Tourism means reorienting travel and tourism based on the rights, interests, and safeguarding of traditional ecological and cultural knowledges of local peoples, communities and living landscapes. This means making tourism work for the public good and taking seriously the idea of putting the social and ecological before profit and growth as the world re-emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic. This is an essential first step for tourism to be made accountable to the limits of the planet. Concepts discussed include Indigenous culture, toxic tourism, a “theory of care”, dismantling whiteness, decolonial tourism and animal oppression, among others, all in the context of a post-COVID-19 world. This will be essential reading for all upper-level students, academics and policymakers in the field of tourism.
