ABSTRACT

Until recently, Japan has exported not only electrical products but also tourists

to all over the world. People know about Japanese products that are

fashionable, reliable or trustworthy. Therefore, Japan has an established brand

image for consumers as product oriented country.

On the other hand, as an economic consequence, the reception of inbound

international visitors has in some extent been over looked and tended to be at

low-key level over the years. At last, Japanese government determined to take

the initiative in tourism, which is called as the inbound tourism initiative of

Japan.

This paper seeks to examine the assumption that nation branding – which will

affect the consumer behaviour – is important to help foreigners understand

Japan not only as a country of industry but also as a tourism country.

This paper investigates into generic brand theory, destination branding theory,

and as a challenge, Beanie Babies (BB) model, a high

involvement/relationship-prone brand model, for destination branding.

To test this model, BB model, this paper compares three characteristic

destinations such as New Zealand, Spain, and Central Eastern Europe (CEE)

or Croatia. Then, Japan’s case is applied to the model.

Based on the result of these case studies, this paper puts forward the

recommendation.

In parallel with the main discussion, methodology, especially generalisation,

is stated.
