    Abstract

    Conclusions: By the second run of our new role-playing game in Miharu, we could grasp details of its effect. Our RPG has already been confirmed in its effect of giving a new viewpoint to town planning by a trial run. Adding some devices and improvements to the trial run, we could find out what type of citizens would have been aware of regional views of the town. That is, the RPG of context-discordance gives us a methodological validity to support a regional planning in awakening a regional context in critical citizens. Moreover, our RPG seems to be instructive in environmental education for students. They can learn regional environmental problems comprehensively from a certain regional society.
