- Tourism development in various regions has both positive and negative impacts on various aspects of life. Sustainable development with regard to community perceptions and participation is a step taken to avoid the negative impacts of tourism development. Based on a research, public perceptions influence their willingness to participate. This study aims to understand the influence of residents’s perception about tourism impact on participation willingness in Kampung Adat Kuta, one of the areas planned to be a cultural village in Ciamis Regency, West Java. By understanding what is happening in Kampung Adat Kuta, the potential problems of tourism development can be anticipated. This research uses quantitative descriptive method with simple linear regression analysis techniques. The results showed that residents’ perception of Kampung Adat Kuta regarding the impact of tourism was positive and the willingness in the community to participate was positive. However, this perception affected only 16.4% of the willingness of the community to participate. This can happen because people do not really understand tourism and its impacts, or because the community only follows the orders of its leaders to participate without really understanding the interests of tourism
