Research Outline  In recent years, the annual retail sales value in the central area of Kyoto City (Kyomachinaka) has been decreasing. As competition between cities is expected to intensify in the future, in order to overcome it, it is necessary to revitalize Kyoto by creating opportunities for exchange in the region and forming human networks of merchants and citizens. Therefore, in this study, we attempted to create a place for exchange that connects various individuals and groups such as merchants in Kyoto, and demonstrated an effective place for human network formation in Kyoto.

Research Theme Spatial
Composition and Changes in Municipal Housing in the Suburbs of Kyoto City and Surrounding Residential Areas: A Fact-finding Survey on Autonomous Operation by Residents of Municipal Housing
Principal Investigator Kyoto Institute of Technology, Department of Industrial Sciences, Doctoral Student, Tetsuya Masaki
Research Outline  In the suburban residential areas of Kyoto City, the outdoor space of public rental housing has become a valuable open space and green space in the region, and it is desirable that it be maintained and utilized as a regional asset in the future. In particular, the small-scale municipal housing distributed in Yamashina Ward and the eastern part of Fushimi Ward, Kyoto City, which was selected as the target of the survey, was designed to be easy to understand how it relates to the surrounding residential areas because of its small size, and to be able to decipher the regional characteristics of each by comparing municipal housing. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to clarify the spatial relationship between the outdoor space of municipal housing and the surroundings through the autonomous operation of outdoor spaces by residents, and to link the knowledge obtained to proposals for Kyoto City policy.
