Nur Hasyim  | Darul Nurjanah
Abstract: This research investigates the toponymy of Kali Buntung tourist village. Kali Buntung is a tourist village in Bantul, Yogyakarta. The research objectives are identifying the toponymy of Kali Buntung Tourism Village based on linguistic and geographical aspects and optimizing tourism villages based on the results of toponymy studies. This research was carried out using a qualitative descriptive approach. The data was collected by conducting literature studies, interviewing tourism village managers, and making direct observations in the field. The data were analysed qualitatively. The findings showed linguistically that the name or term Kali Buntung comes from the Javanese language, namely times which means river and buntung which means cut off. Secondly, the meaning of Kali Buntung as a tourist village is based on the geographical fact that the river has no source. It is estimated that the cal is sourced from rice field water absorption. The findings are that the services that have been provided are good: boat services, outbound services, market services that sell the products/potentials from Kali Buntung, namely agricultural and irrigation products, and need to be added to the 2006 Bantul earthquake traceability service. In the context of optimization, village management tours need to be strengthened and services are suggested on Saturdays and Sundays as an alternative to minimize operational costs.
