Human science covers a wide range of fields and many kinds of sensors are used in the area. The application field for the sensor will also expand in future. A research committee of Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan for the field was constituted in 2006. The name is "Research committee of sensing technology on human science." This study was summarized on June 2009 due to the committee members. Sensing technology on human science field is divided into three fields, namely "health technology," "medical technology" and "assistive technology." The three fields are summarized from the sides of "sensorium" and "body." A portion of the physical sensors related with human science is also investigated in this study. As the result, the main goal of investigation and development in this field is to create an emulating robot for human, the robot can emulate human five senses, and also to build up the transmission technology of the five sense information. The technology is called "Five-sense communication." It is necessary to construct the technology that information obtained from human five-senses can be transmitted to a remote location. Various kinds of the applications are available according to the transmitting technology for the information felt by humans. It becomes obvious that the fusion between sensor, robot and transmission technology is the major theme for the next generation. Copyright © 2011 American Scientific Publishers.

Alcohol concentration in the expiration of a subjective person after drinking was examined. Beer, Japanese sake, red wine and shochu were adopted as the alcoholic subjects. The sensor outputs after 1 hour and 2 hours of drinking were adopted in the technique. The concentration grade was indicated using three metal-oxide odor sensors. It became obvious that the alcoholic component in the expiration could remain over 3 hours after drinking. Japanese elderly people mostly prefer beer and sake according to a questionnaire survey which was carried out for the aged, and the number of people was 68. The survey was carried out by a mail correspondence method. The number of males was 37 and the female number was 31. Many persons who received the questionnaire preferred beer and sake to whiskey and wine. In this study, the sensor-output characteristic as a function of passage of time after drinking sake was investigated and the suitable amount could be indicated by a developed technique. This means an amount of alcohol from which the subject feels refreshment of mind and body. In the questionnaire, it became obvious that 61% of aged men habitually drunk and 18% of females drunk. Women also preferred wine, plum liquor and shochu cocktails. This system was developed to survey the aged life style and identify whether they drunk moderately or not. And it can be also applicable to health monitoring for the elderly person. © 2011 WIT Press.

Plants have various kinds of functions. One of them is a purifying function to gaseous contaminants including carbon dioxide. It is a noticeable function from the standpoint of protection of the global environment. Plants can purify not only carbon dioxide but also nitrogen oxide and sulfur oxide, and the chemicals are used as a source of energy after having been broken down in the plants. In addition, plants put out a bioelectric potential which changes depending on the environment and growing conditions. In this study, the relationship between the potential and purification capability of a plant is examined using an LED lighting system. Broccoli is adopted as a subjective plant and the experiment is carried out with five kinds of LED light frequencies including darkness. The summation value is adopted as the potential value, namely the total amount of the bioelectric potential for a minute (vm1). As a result, the capability increases and the potential also becomes greater in blue light. A positive correlation is recognized in the relationship between the potential and the capability. A specific gaseous chemical could be purified in a particular light-frequency by applying the results of this study. © 2013 WIT Press.

In recent years, the number of foreign tourists who visit Japan is ncreasing. Regional areas need to cooper- ate with their neighboring areas ecause tourist visits usually cover a wide area. VHowever, the more foreign tourists that come to regional areas, the more problems that occur with regards to uneven distribution. Subsequently, problems such as the capacity of accommodations, and traffic jams occur in these areas. This paper analyses the uneven distribution faced by various areas related to seasonal accommodation centralization. The area of the case study was “the Chubu Area”, a central area of Japan consisting of nine prefectures. The results show that the more foreign tourists that come to this area, the greater the seasonal ubiquity. One reason is an increase in foreign people visiting the Chubu Area for sightseeing. Therefore, sightseeing spots, which have seasonal features, result in attracting tourists in specific seasons. The results of the case study showed that the more foreign tourists that come to this area, the greater the seasonal ubiquity.One reason for this is assumed to be because the increased rate of foreign people visiting the Chubu Area is for sightseeing. Therefore, sightseeing spots, which have seasonal features, attract visitors in the specific seasons. If this condition continues, foreign tourists may become dissatisfied with their visit to Japan because of overcrowding, so a solution needs to be onsidered. Some regional areas in Japan may already have overcome the problems by not promoting only the famous sightseeing spots in an area for a specific season.One of the resolutions of both decentralization and continual increases in foreign tourists may be the promotion of business attractions. © (JSRSAI) 2015.

Automation of clerical work has been advanced to a great extent. Organizational decision making activities are growing in a primary part of fund management work. Varieties of research have been done in the field of fund raising. Among these simulations are gaining the most attention, but so far it is not accepted by corporate managers. This paper introduces two different simulation techniques. The techniques are different from the ones which have been used. These should be accepted by ordinary fund managers in their daily decision making activities. This paper emphasizes that the techniques are relied and understood by corporate fund managers. The purpose of this paper results in adoption of simulation based on all computation approach without using sample approach with random numbers. In addition this new approach puts fund managers' subjectivity into the computational processes. This paper focuses on the basic technique for taking subjectivity of fund manages into the simulation. As for the result, the presenting possibility of the wider application of this simulation method is derived under various environmental conditions.


The number of visitors to Japan from foreign countries exceeded 10 million people in 2013.At present, more are expected in the near future, so regional inbound policies have become important for increasing foreign visitors. In this report, the effects of the wide inbound policy are analyzed.Many wide-area inbound tourism associations are making an effort to promote an increase in foreign visitors, and one main supporter for the budgets is the local governments.As the main members of the inbound tourism associations, local governments may hope that associations will lead foreign visitors to their areas for economic benefits. Based on this situation, the correlations between the wide-area inbound policy and the economic effects of each prefecture in the ‘Chubu Wide-area Tourism Promotion Council’, which consists of nine prefectures in the central area of Japan were analyzed, using the Chubu I-O Table.According to the result, the inbound policy of the Council has a wide-area inbound merit and provides economic benefits to each prefecture. © 2015, Japan Section of the Regional Science Association International.

There are nine private houses in the village of Otsuchi-machi, which is located in the Ishikawa prefecture of Japan. However, only three people are living in two houses now. The district is an intermediate and mountainous area. It is now in a state of decay and half-deserted, but it used to have a lot of life in the old days, due to agriculture and forestry. In this study, an increase in the number of visitors is investigated based on various kinds of resources, for example the natural beauty of the area and local dishes (including unique mountain vegetables). There is a possibility that village people could live sustainably by offering a combination of local dishes and the experience of charcoal burning. It was deemed to be necessary to construct a database of mountain-vegetable dishes to meet a wide variety of visitors' demands. Visitors can make a reservation through the same database, which is user-customized. It is more important to revitalize a local area in Japan than to contribute to improving the facilities at famous tourist spots. © 2010 WIT Press.

Some prefectural governments introduce a prefectural original tax̶the forest tax̶to preserve a high common value of forests. On the basis of this point, this paper analyzes the prefectural forest tax as an example of environmental policies. According to the analysis, in the prefectures where the forest tax is levied, the main purpose for the introduction of the tax is considered to be the importance of the symbolic value of cooperation among citizens for preservation of the forest, rather than the prefectural government’s financial support to preserve the prefectural forest area. As a result, the reason for the introduction of a tax does not burden citizens with total responsibility for the deterioration of the forest environment caused by economic activity, the “Polluter Pays Principle”. Instead it includes both the effect of the announcement of protection of the forest on the society and the purpose of awareness-raising activities for the forest, based on assumptions that protection of the forest increases the social benefits for the population as a whole. © 2015, Japan Section of the Regional Science Association International.

Suzu city is located at the tip of Noto Peninsula in Ishikawa Prefecture of Japan. In the city, the ratio of workers engaged in the primary industry is 20%. The value is higher in the prefecture and ranks fourth. In other words, it is desired to utilize the primary articles. Especially, attractive foods which are based on fishing and farming are necessary as one of the unique resources. It becomes obvious that the ratio of lodgers from other prefectures reaches 70% as the research result on trend of visitors to the area. The area has a potential to increase the lodger number depending on a measure. There are some agendas. One of them is to take much time to access. It takes two and half hours from Kanazawa city which is the capital city of Ishikawa prefecture and takes forty minutes from Noto Airport by car. This study arrives at the conclusion that it needs a local revitalization which is centered on "roadside stations" (Michi-no-eki in Japanese). There are three roadside stations in Suzu city. The stations are familiar to nearly all citizens and tourists. Revitalizing measures could be constructed by applying the three stations as a triangle. And there are many tourist sites, for example: Enden-village, Mituke-island and Rokkouzaki lighthouse. Fresh food and the experience of the salt garden are attractive to tourists. The questionnaire survey was carried out to write up the needs of inhabitants on Michi-no-eki. The high-ratio need was a diner and coffee shop. © 2011 WIT Press.
