Transportation Planning for Historical Cities

Tourist behaviors in Kyoto City, which is a typical historical city in Japan, are analyzed based on the questionnaire survey for tourists.  Characteristics of tourist behaviors and number of tourists in each area are estimated based on the tourist behavior analyses.  Then, the planning methods for identification of evacuation routes for tourists from cultural heritage as sightseeing spots to evacuation sites are proposed and the characteristics of evacuation routes are analyzed.
