Abstract: In the recent decades, more and more researches have explored that there is a strongly positive correlation between economic growth and characteristics of regional community and that entrepreneurship is the engine of regional economic growth. However, in many rural and peripheral regions, geographical disadvantages make it very difficult to develop community and grow entrepreneurship for regional development. In this study, we observed and examined the region of Yaeyama Islands in Japan and many firms in this region and found that community culture is one of the positive factors for the development in this region. The intrinsic spirit of shared vision and joint mission based on nature loving, heritage respecting and future concerning have great impacts on propelling community evolution and entrepreneurial activities. This paper focuses on how community culture contributes to community development and entrepreneurship growing for the development in Yaeyama islands. The successful experience may have some implications for other rural and peripheral regions.
