This study aims to clarify the changes of the relationship between green spaces and residents on Tamagawa Josui Green Way and to get hints on green preservation method. Changes of the relationship are considered by Policy changes, place changes and residents’ consciousness changes. As the result of the study, from Edo era to 1950, Green Way was not intimate and was only visited for seeing cherry blossoms because Tamagawa Josui is at the edge of the villages. From 1950 to 1970, new community was created around Green Way through urban expansion. Green Way was very appreciated as a natural spot with images of Musashino by the immigrants. From 1970 to 1990, Green Way lost natural charm by artificial park construction and Tamagawa Josui drain. Residents started preservation activities. Since 1990, the image of Musashino with copses and canals revived on Green Way. In recent years cafes and concert houses appear along Green Way. Residents are enjoying Green Way in their daily life by designing their gardens or houses to melt into Green Way. As a result, it is suggested that the Tamagawa Josui scenic zone using the image of Musahino kept Green Way. When green space connects surround, residents tend to appreciate green spaces and to have daily relationship with green spaces.
