Research Report

Research Report

This is a report on the results of research adopted in 2011. (The title of the principal investigator is as of the time of selection.)

Designated issue: Understanding the needs for realizing "true work-life balance" and measures to promote it

Research Theme Issues of needs analysis and support measures for realizing an environment where family caregivers can balance work and nursing care (work-care-life balance)
Principal Investigator Associate Professor, Faculty of Industrial Sociology, Ritsumeikan University Mao Saito
Research Outline Although there is an urgent need to establish measures to support a balance between work and nursing care due to the progress of an aging society, changes in population and household structure, and an increase in the employment rate of women, it must be said that measures to support a balance between work and nursing care are lagging behind those of work and childcare. Therefore, in this study, with the main purpose of understanding the needs for realizing an environment where family caregivers can balance work and nursing care, we conducted a questionnaire survey of companies and workers in Kyoto City and interviewed people who had to leave their jobs due to nursing care, and compiled basic data on administrative issues (support for companies and workers) for balancing work and nursing care.

Designated Issue: "Community Development Utilizing Culture, Arts and Traditions" in Kyoto City

Research Theme A Study on Citizen Participatory Activities in Traditional Performing Arts
Principal Investigator Lecturer, Faculty of Foreign Studies, Kyoto University of Foreign Studies Chisako Takashima
Research Outline Traditional performing arts are one of the effective mediums for regional revitalization, but the relationship between traditional culture and people has been weakened due to changes in lifestyles and local communities, making it difficult to pass on traditional culture.
Therefore, in this study, we clarified the conditions for inheriting traditional performing arts by conducting fieldwork surveys and questionnaire surveys of public elementary, junior high, and high schools in Kyoto City, and summarized support measures to maintain and improve traditional performing arts in the future.

Research Theme Economic and Environmental Evaluation of Food Recycling in Kyoto City
Principal Investigator Master's Student, Graduate School of Agriculture, Kyoto University Yumi Hatano
Research Outline In Kyoto City, the amount of food waste (garbage) emitted by both households and businesses is decreasing, but in light of the fact that Kyoto City is one of the leading international tourist cities in Japan and the number of tourists is steadily increasing, this study examined a more optimal treatment method for business-related food waste. Specifically, we simulated the disposal method of business-related food waste from the viewpoints of economic and environmental aspects using a waste input-output table for three cases: the current case (carried out of the city), the total incineration case, and the virtual case (a new biogasification facility was built in the city), and showed that the virtual case was the most desirable.

Research Theme Greenery nurtured by citizens by overflowing potted plants in alleys ~Verification of green vision rate and improvement of local community~
Principal Investigator Lecturer, Faculty of Sociology, Bukkyo University Shogo Mizukami
Research Outline Although greenery is sought after by residents in cities, most urban land use is residential. Especially in the alleys of Kyoto City, it is said that there is little greenery.
Therefore, in this study, we focused on the mobile greenery of potted plants placed on the surface of dwelling units in the greenery along the alleys (specific areas) of Kyoto City, conducted a green vision rate survey and a resident awareness survey, clarified the contribution of potted plants to the green vision rate of potted plants and the impact of the presence of potted plants on the local community, and summarized recommendations for future greening policies in Kyoto City.
