Abstract

This article is a study to consider the way of reconstruction by the Collective Relocation Project after a disaster. We conducted a questionnaire for residents who experienced the project. The results were as follows: 1) There are multiple types of collective relocation. The problem of relocation of the whole village is that there are residents who chose to move based on a negative motive. But public housing was supplied by the project and this supported the relocation of low income residents. 2) The problem of spotty partial collective relocation is that some residents must remain because of economic reasons. Remaining residents generally showed a lower intention of settlement. 3) It is important for adopting the Collective Relocation Project to make clear whether relocation of the whole village is unavoidable and to support the relocation of low income residents who want to move.
