Rural area has many functions for us, but in Japanese rural area, there are problems such as decreasing population and ageing. Recently local inhabitants can't be kept these functions, so they exchange between urban inhabitants to enliven the area. We think interactions between urban and local inhabitants will have an influence to life environment of urban and local inhabitants who participate the projects. So we paid attention to 'The Rice Terraces Ownership System', and this study aims to clarify the effects on the participants of 'The Rice Terraces Ownership System' at Asuka village, Nara prefecture. The conditions of participation, concernment of area and behavioral intention on interaction are related to urban inhabitants' intention of stay at local inhabitants' home and migration in the area. Also old urban inhabitants have intention of them more than young urban inhabitants. Many local inhabitants have behavioral intention that they don't feel like greeting strange urban inhabitants. Participation of ownership system, positive interaction between urban inhabitants have high behavioral intention to greet urban inhabitants' staying and migrating in the area.
