The purposes of this paper are as follows, first, to analyze the different economic effects yielded by the three forms of visitation, namely, ay trip, Hotel stay, and Allotment stay;second, to analyze the additional economic effects (AEE), that is, the economic effects by consumption of CTE visitors in non-CTB enterprises; and third, to analyze the features of the industries in which an economic effect is affected. The results are as follows. (1) The direct effects of CTB are greater than that of the other industries, while the indirect effects are greater only in the case of the Allotment. (2) The amount of direct effects differs from one visitation form to another. In the case of indirect effects, the amount yielded by Allotment stay is greater. (3) The AEE of Allotment stay are smaller than those of the other visitation forms. (4) The economic effects to the big industries in Yachiyo-Town are great, but the industries, which using any intermediate products made in Yachiyo-Town, are little affected.
