Abstract: The purpose of this study is to clarify how the municipal governments and private organizations throughout the country are currently dealing with green tourism projects through questionnaires and interviews and to examine the associated problems. The results of this study indicate that green tourism projects have helped stabilize and improve agricultural and forestry productivity and develop and introduce new farm products in suburban villages. In addition, green tourism projects have been, to some extent, as a measure in preventing the thinning-out of population in rural areas. To solve the problems, it is important to consider the possibility of designing green tourism activities as a part of exchange programs with urban cities, as well as attracting ordinary travellers. Additionally, it is also crucial to take into consideration possible measures to design green tourism activities to utilize run-down farm and forest lands for proper management to increase their productivity, to increase job opportunities to keep for young people in rural areas, and to find people newly engaged in farming and forestry.
