This research discusses the generation method of the narrative text linked with geographic space data. First, analysis methods for the existing folk tale text are described. It is clarified that there is geographic bias in the narrative text. Next, the technique for using geographic space data for the sightseeing tour is described. The sightseeing tour is an action for the tourist to touch the narrative text in the local area while moving. We maintained the place that related to the text as geographic space data. The text including place information code can be plotted on the digital map. We propose a new expression technique of the story text by integrating these methods.
