    In this study, we clarified the reality of livability on sloping land and evaluated the plan by analyzing the relationship with the location normalization plan. The data is mainly from the National Land Information System and e-Stat, and the current situation is analyzed using QGIS from the viewpoint of population coverage in the area where slopes overlap with the residential guidance area defined in the location normalization plan. Many towns on sloping land experienced a decrease in population, while many towns on non-sloping land experienced an increase in population. This shows that there is a relationship between the slope and the increase or decrease in population. Based on the results of the analysis of population coverage within walking distance, it is necessary to conduct a more cross sectional analysis and apply detailed measures, as there are cities where coverage varies greatly depending on the indicators of spatial analysis.

    The purpose of this study is to clarify the process to the application of the reverse area division and its problems in Maizuru City, Kyoto Pref. The city selected the candidate sites of the reverse area division by the original criteria about the area classification, such as the current land use, the population change rate, etc. It took much time to build the consensus with the residents and Kyoto Pref. which has authority of the area classification. As conclusions, Japanese government should create the criteria of the reverse area division because population decreasing will last in the future. Moreover, it is needed the delegation of the area classification authority to a city which has just one city planning area. They will lead to reduce the burden for local governments and applicate the reverse area division more actively.

    In this study, we used the related side roads constructed by Kyoto City as a case study to clarify the debate on the related side roads and the changes in the debate on the related side roads, and to examine how the debate has affected the construction of the related side roads. The related side roads constructed in Kyoto City are characterized by community roads and bicycle-pedestrian-only roads, which are not found in other related side roads in the Kinki region. In the first seven years of the discussion on the Hankyu West Road, the main issues were noise and scenery, and in the latter year, the main issue was how to ensure convenience for the residents in the vicinity and not to interfere with their daily lives, since commercial facilities would be constructed under the elevated tracks.

    URBACT, an urban policy program that has been implemented in the EU since 2002, serves as a platform for the formation of policy networks among multiple cities to exchange information and share experiences in order to provide knowledge on urban regeneration to as many cities as possible. This study focuses on URBACT, the EU's urban policy network, and examines its activities as well as the formation process and significance of the policy network. As a result of the research, the activities of URBACT can be classified into two categories: "formation of policy networks" and "formulation of LAPs".(2) Regarding the method of policy network formation, URBACT III has turned to a mechanism that actively encourages networking among cities.URBACT III can be considered to be implementing urban regeneration at two different scales: 1) the level of issues common to multiple cities obtained through policy networks, and 2) the formulation of LAPs tailored to the actual conditions of each region.

    Area management activities, one of the community activities, have a public interest nature, however they are mainly conducted by private sectors. There are issues such as how to secure financial resources and human resources. On the other hand, the combination of Japanese Business Improvement District system (enacted in June 2018) and "Furusatonouzei" system has been considered as a realistic way to finance the implementation of area management activities in regional area such as Yuasa Town, Wakayama Prefecture. By the way, the awareness of reciprocity, which is a component of social capital (of an important factor for community activities), is a factor for "Furusatonouzei" system. In this paper, we would like to discuss how much participation in community activities such as area management activities influences the act of donating money to "Furusatonouzei" system by using an ordered logit model.

    Against the backdrop of recent urban downsizing, the importance of systems for guiding the concentration of urban functions and controlling urbanization has increased, and knowledge of similar systems from the past is required. The purpose of this study is to clarify the actual status of the green space system in Kyoto City during the war reconstruction period, comparing it with the system in Tokyo and other regional cities. The study revealed that the purpose of designation and the criteria for designation were applied flexibly in the operation of the green space system, that there were common points in the revision and abolition of green space areas in both metropolitan and regional cities, and that the system had become remained superficial.

    In this study, the actual situation of vacant land utilization was grasped for the community-type provisional use. From the above, it became clear that: (1) the purpose, use, area, and period of the project tend to differ depending on the type of operation; (2) after the tentative use ends, there is a possibility that it will become an opportunity for new development, such as a change in the target site or the management entity; and (3) the community formed by sharing the site through the tentative use may continue to develop as an ongoing community development activity even after the use ends. (3) The community formed by sharing the space through the provisional use may continue to develop as a community development activity even after the use ends. Although the community-based tentative use is a project that is supposed to end, and the place as a base for people will eventually disappear, the impact on the formation of the local community is thought to have the possibility of having sustainability.

    Kodo is a valuable historical resource that has supported exchanges between regions as a place for people and goods to move. On the other hand, in modern times, traveling by car has become the mainstream, and the attractiveness of the landscape that can be felt by walking has been lost. The historical ancient road "Ariwara no Narihira" is said to have been passed by Ariwara no Narihira, a poet of the Heian period, to Princess Kawachi. It is located in Yao City from the current Tenri City, and is popular as a walking route. There is. In this study, the attractive effect was clarified by symbolizing the spatial structure of the sequence landscape of the business flat road. Regarding symbolization, we applied Lynch's method of symbolizing sequence landscapes on highways to pedestrian spaces, and applied "sense of space and movement" and "position of gaze objects" consisting of nodes, landmarks, districts, and edges. We identified and analyzed the "look" and searched for the attraction effect.

    By focusing on businesses that utilize old houses in the old city of Omi Hachiman, this study aims to investigate the key process for making good use of old houses. In Oumihachiman, it is shown that building a relationship of trust between the landlord and the new business, and the business risk related to the initial investment cost are important to promote each phase. It has been found that the issues in each phase can be solved to some extent through connections with local businesses, residents, and contractors such as construction companies, subsidies from the preservation district for historic buildings, and self-renovation. It is also clear that the individual cases have a ripple effect on other cases, and that the community that is forming in the region encourages the utilization of old houses.

We conducted hearing surveys of six organizations that conduct CF for repairing landscape components and processing and selling specialty products made b residents. Although many organizations do not reach the target amount of donations for landscape improvement, there are cases where it was carried out as planned when the project cost was secured by separately acquiring funds from subsidized projects. We were able to confirm the effect of recognition and expansion of sales channels, because of branding by unifying the design concept of the product group by using CF. Regarding information dissemination, although the number of visitors has not increased and awareness has not been raised from inside and outside the region, some groups have pointed out the effect of promoting participation in activities.

    Although there is a close relationship between the formation process of urban areas and the formation process of narrow streets, the streets allowed by Article 42-2 in the Building Standards Law remain a problem. The purpose of this study is to understand the recent problems regarding narrow streets and to collect information to consider measures to deal with the problem from the perspective of improving the living environment. This study was conducted in the Kawaragi district of Nishinomiya City, Hyogo Prefecture, which is a residential area where the demand for housing is high. We analyzed the changes in the formation of narrow streets between 1990 and 2020. As a result, it was found that unlike the districts where land readjustment projects were implemented before the urbanization process, the districts where they were not implemented had an increase in the number of streets allowed by Article 42-1-5 in the Building Standard Law due to mini-development ahead of the section 2 streets.

    In this study, we clarified the process by which the space symbolizing the memory of tragedy is preserved. Then, the relationship between the survival of the space and the inheritance mechanism of the memory of tragedy was discussed. Unlike historical buildings that are worthy of being cultural assets, spaces that symbolize the memory of tragedy are valued for their tragic nature and the lessons that can be learned from them. Therefore, the process of sharing the lessons and overcoming the tragedy among the people involved is essential for preservation. In the cases where the space has been preserved through the above process, tourism and learning visits have become possible. This suggests the significance of preserving the space in that it enables the transmission of memories beyond the boundaries of those involved and the local community.

    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.

    In recent years, the arrival of a super-aged society and concerns about environmental impact have led many cities to shift from a car-centered road space to a pedestrian-centered road space with high mobility. However, it is still unclear what factors in the street configuration affect pedestrian circulation and how affect it around large terminal stations where the street configuration is complex. In this study, with the aim of contributing to the redistribution of road space, we conducted a feature analysis of pedestrian density by using mobile tracking data for the three areas of Tennoji, Namba, and Umeda, which have large railway stations, and a relationship analysis of these three areas by using space syntax theory, which is one of the indicators of street configuration. And this study examines the impact of street configuration on pedestrian density.

    In this research, we evaluate classification method in order to understand preference of tourists from geotagged photos and to build a system for recommendation of tourism spots aimed at spatial dispersion of tourists. Three clustering method is applied to collected photos and their labels: 1) principal component analysis and nonhierarchical clustering, 2) ClustOfVar, an R package and hierarchical clustering, and 3) topic model by Latent Dirichlet Allocation. By focused on spatial distribution of photo and tf-idf, which is used to evaluate importance of words in documents, we evaluate each method. Classification by ClustOfVar is able to clusify photos which match contents of label. On the other hand, classification by topic model shows different result from other methods, thus there is room for improvement.

    Investigating the existing literatures, we categorized the types of players that participate in the Living Lab as stakeholders. As a result, four main categories of players were found, these are users/citizens, universities/research institutions, public organizations such as government/municipalities, and companies. In addition, if we applied the 17 roles of actors in the Living Lab network identified by Nystrom et al. (2014) to the four players, we found that the role of users/citizens was remarkably small. From this fact, the roles of users and citizens need to be clarified so that workshop facilitators can conduct effective facilitation.

    Since most of the designated roads are associated with mini-developments, they are often viewed in a negative perspective. The purpose of this study is to categorize the morphological characteristics of the location-designated roads in Shimogyo Ward, a part of the historic center of Kyoto, to understand the spatial characteristics based on the categorization, to clarify the actual conditions of use, and to attempt to reevaluate the location-designated roads. From this study, it can be concluded that (1) the form of location-designated roads has become simpler since the 1990s, (2) overflowing tends to occur more easily on location-designated roads with complex forms, (3) overflowing occurs more often on location-designated roads than self-expression, (4) intervention in the road space is less likely on location-designated roads in recent years, and (5) overflowing and overflowing tend to occur on relatively narrow widths.

In order to reduce the damage caused by frequent floods, it is effective not only to carry out embankment construction but also to take measures such as moving to land with low risk and making their houses water resistant. It is thought that they are affected by Risk perception. Therefore, we conducted a questionnaire survey on households who were damaged and rebuilt their homes in Mabi-cho, Kurashiki City. It was found that various factors are involved in the return to the original area, which differ depending on the age. Although the number of residents taking water resistance measures for housing has increased compared to before the disaster, the majority of households did not take measures due to financial reasons and prioritizing early evacuation and flood compensation. There was no strong relationship between awareness of re-damage risk and water resistance of houses.

    In underground shopping malls, effective evacuation guidance is necessary to ensure smooth evacuation for visitors who are not familiar with the area when a disaster occurs. The purpose of this study is to construct a simulation model of crowd evacuation using a multi-agent system, and to investigate effective evacuation guidance methods. The evacuation guiding strategy considered in this paper is to place guiding staff in the underground mall and evacuate visitors to the ground from the nearest stairs. As a result of the analysis, it was found that increasing the number of guiding staff can shorten the evacuation completion time. However, when the number of guiding staff exceeds a certain level, the evacuation completion time is not expected to be reduced any further. In addition, it was found that countermeasures were necessary to deal with the queues that occurred at the evacuation exits.

    This article focused on the Disaster Mitigation Cooperation Agricultural Land System that facilitated the utilization of farmland as temporary evacuation grounds in times of disasters. It aimed to clarify how much the system would contribute to regional disaster prevention as a temporary evacuation site in a high-density area. To this end, it estimated the number of evacuees to the cooperated farmland using location-allocation analysis, and the differences in future efforts to promote the institution between local governments through a questionnaire survey. The results showed that the contribution of the cooperated farmland was low immediately after the beginning of evacuation because it was distributed collectively. Local governments that were active in promoting the institution were found to plan to request farmers to register it through the agricultural committee. Among others, those that had not been long since the beginning of the institution planned to inform citizens of it and those that had a certain number of registered farmlands planned to make efforts to utilize them properly.

    In this age of diversified lifestyles, there is a lack of providing houses and living environments that are suitable for residents' preferences in choosing a place to live. Although external factors such as place of employment and household composition have been pointed out as factors that influence the choice of residence, internal factors related to the ideal lifestyle image held by the residents have not been mentioned. In this study, we hypothesize that there are latent internal factors that form the ideal lifestyle image, and that these factors are formed based on experiences during the growth process in childhood. This paper reports the results of a previous survey conducted to foresee the development of future research based on this awareness of the issue. The growth process was divided into three categories, and the ideal lifestyle image was organized by residential experience.
