This paper attempts to examine the intention of residence continuance in a historic landscape community under suffered risk of the Nankai Trough Great Earthquake and their supporting factors. A questionnaire was conducted among residents of the Kuroe-Funo districts, Kainan City. The main findings are as follows. 1) The deeper the residents are involved with the cultural capital of the community, the greater their risk awareness in the future disaster. But the residents' choice of living location is not always governed by the awareness. 2) What supports the intention of residence continuance are factors such as how convenient it is to have everyday necessities within easy walking distance, how much opportunity there is for incidental contact with neighbors, and the history of their livelihoods in the houses and on the lands they own. 3) Supporting factors of their intention are matters to depend on a specific geographical space.
