This study clarifies three things about the housing environment that should be considered when planning future community vitalizations through collaborations among people on remote island regions with different origins and immigration motives. First, it identifies the factors that influenced the residential composition of Shiraho. Second, it classifies residents by origin. Third, it identifies the characteristics of residential locations according to the residents′ origins and immigration timing. The results show that the residential composition of Shiraho changed in four stages. Regarding the spatial distribution of households in the residential areas of Shiraho, similar Shuriners and similar Taramanians resided in respective clusters, which were spatially separate from Shirahonians. Recent immigration of outsiders changed the distribution of the old residential area, but in some cases they came to reside in newly opened areas that other residents avoided for various reasons.
