Recently, transportation energy consumption became an important issue from the view-point of environmental problem. The purpose of this paper is to examine the relationship between urban structure andtransportation energy in Tokyo metropolitan area.
After the calculation by using PT data, energy consumption in Tokyo is lower than average of nationwide area, but it tends to be increasing lately at especially suburban area. And the simulations showed that the policy of state where one's residence and place of work are near each other is more effective to reduce the transportation energy.
