Firstly, this opening chapter presents the scope and aim of this monograph. Many studies have examined Japan's tourism, culture, heritage and society. Indeed, these studies have made great contributions to knowledge in relevant study fields but do not always fully comprehend the meanings of certain concepts or phenomena in the context of Japanese culture, heritage, and society. This situation should be improved and a more Japanese perspective must be provided to achieve more comprehensive understanding of cultural heritage and tourism in Japan, and to realise more-balanced manifestation of diverse views towards cultural heritage and tourism in Japan. Secondly, this chapter demonstrates a conceptual framework adopted in this book. The framework covers key theories and themes associated with cultural heritage and tourism and acts as a basis of discussions throughout this monograph. These discussions are constructed, referring to main theories and themes on heritage and tourism and related examples from Japan. The discussions place Japanese heritage and tourism experience within the global experience to indicate the relationship between these two. Thirdly, the history of tourism in Japan is outlined and how it has formed cultural heritage as a tourism product is explained. Lastly, the chapter shows the structure of the book.
