This paper uses the ethnographic method. In this study, the ethnographic method was used so that researchers could get the first experience of the natives of Tutup Ngisor village. As a village with a strong culture, Tutup Ngisor village is very suitable as an eco-cultural tourism destination. This is supported by the dwellers that still uphold Javanese culture. However, village elders refused to make Tutup Ngisor village a tourist village. Elder Tutup Ngisor agrees if the cultural tourism carried out is educational-based cultural tourism.

Even though Tutup Ngisor can be an eco-cultural tourism village, they refuse it because the culture will be changed.
