Abstract

Identifying the key determinants of Michinoeki and assessing its impact on efficiency is considered as an urgent issue. Accordingly, this paper proposed a new approach to calculate the efficiency using DEA model after determining the significant factors using a regression model. The data were collected from Yamaguchi area, which is considered the birthplace of Michinoeki in Japan. This paper contributes to the literature by: (1) Identifying the key factors of Michinoeki in Yamaguchi area, and (2) calculating the efficiencies of the Michinoeki, and (3) developing a four-cell matrix to ascertain the relative position of Michinoeki for future development. Based on the findings, the managerial implications are discussed, the study limitations are identified and directions for further research are suggested.
