Adding a new perspective to the current literature on
decentralization in Japan, Cities, Autonomy and Decentralization in
Japan, approaches the subject from an urban studies and planning
approach. The essays in the collection present a cogent compilation
of case studies focusing on the past, present and future of
decentralization in Japan. These include small scale development in
the fields such as citizen participation (machizukuri), urban form
and architecture, disaster prevention and conservation of
monuments. The contributors suggest that new trends are emerging
after the bursting of Japan's economic bubble and assess them in
the context of the country's larger socio-political system. This
in-depth analysis of the development outside of Japan provides a
valuable addition to students of Urban, Asian and Japanese Studies.
