This study examines the reduction and reorganization of Public Housing in Kyoto City, focusing on the changes in location. It was found the changes in location into three categories: (1) wards there is little change in the number of units, (2) wards half of the total number of units decreases, and (3) wards the total number of units decreases by three quarters but there is only one housing complex in the city and the number of units may increase in the future. Based on this, it is clear that the reduction and reorganization of public housing in Kyoto City will (1) polarize the location of public housing between suburban and central areas, and (2) mainly in central areas, the reduction in the number of housing complexes may encourage people who need to secure housing to congregate in the wards. The reduction and reorganization of public housing may narrow the housing options of those in need of housing security, accelerating concentration and causing segregation.
