It is important to lessen the energy consumption used in houses which increases rapidly in Japan as a measure to global warming. We showed that cooling behavior related to visual and auditory sensation are valid for energy conservation in Japan (Fukusaka and Matsubara 2015). The purpose of this study is to discuss the possibility that students who have difficulty to do cooling behavior related to visual and auditory sensation will change their behavior in the future. Questionnaire survey was conducted at two universities in Kyoto City. Number of respondents was 213. The results showed that were those who like nature friendly life have a tendency to save air-conditioner use. The possible number of the students who will change their behavior to use wind-chime in the future was more than four times than the present.
