The purpose of this study is to clarify how the sites of public elementary and junior high schools are used. Thr ough this study, the authors revealed three main points. First, this study comprises of 52 sites in Iwate and Miyagi Prefecture. S chools located at the sites were abolished or moved inland. Second, location of sites influenced the land uses. For example, when the site is located in the area designated as disaster hazard areas after it was affected by the Tsunami, there will be plans to change land use to a public facility, public restoration housing, or residential housing. Lastly, there are cases that the projects for restoration influence the land use of sites. For example, a site is planned as a public community center because there will b e a new residential area near the site. In this case, it can also be said that the local government took into account sentiments of residents because schools were very important for local communities and local residents. However, there are some problems such as maintenance costs. In summary, it is necessary to consider the situations of topology or projects for restoratio n near sites.
