Abstract

In modern society, it is important to build mutual understanding between people of different nationalities and cultural backgrounds. Media can play a major role in such a society to materialize the intangible aspect of cross-cultural understanding. To achieve this aim, a place-oriented audio guide system was designed and implemented; the fieldwork experiment with 11 international and 5 Japanese participants was conducted in Tokyo. From the experimental result, the “Cross-Cultural Understanding Model” focusing on recognition of the difference, oneself, and a certain culture itself, was developed.
