This research is intended to investigate the socio-economic characteristic of the agriculture and communities on remote areas in Japan, from three different viewpoints : agricultural management, construction of distribution channel for agricultural products, and the role of agriculture for a regional economy.
Based on above three viewpoints, on the first year of this research, we conducted a field research on Abashiri area (in Hokkaido) and Ishigaki Island (in Okinawa) to discover the socio-economic characteristics of these typical remote areas in Japan. On the second year, we performed a supplementary research on above two areas and held a meeting for summing up the results of field researches. On the final year, we scrutinized and organized the results presented from each researcher on the meeting, and made a report that was consisted of following four parts.
