  • DEVELOPMENT OF ACTIVITIES BY NONRESIDENTS THROUGH "KO":- Case of Tenkawa Daibenzaiten-sha Shrine in Tenkawa-village, Yoshino-gun, Nara-prefecture -, MORITA Ryoya, GOTO Haruhiko, YAMAZAKI Yoshito, Journal of Architecture and Planning (Transactions of AIJ), (761) 1589 - 1599,   2019 07 ,

     Owing to the falling birthrate and an aging, declining population, it is considered important to sustain regional images, especially in rural areas to maintain the vitality of the region while incorporating external entities.

     One cultural resource found all over the country are shrines. Many shrines have long contributed to nurturing and maintaining the ties among local residents through rituals. Although the entities that support the shrine and its rituals are mainly "Shinshoku (priest)" and "Ujiko (parishioner), " in areas of ongoing depopulation, it would be desirable to build a relationship with the "Sukeisha (worshipper)" who contribute to protecting and maintaining the shrine although living outside thereby generating vitality in the region.

     This study focuses on Tenkawa Daibenzaiten-sha Shrine in Nara Prefecture, which was revived from devastation and where worshippers not only pray or participate in annual events but have also performed new activities such as "Tenkawa Tatakagurako" (hereinafter referred to as "Kagurako") for 20 years, to understand the reasons behind the shrine's prosperity and the actual condition of Kagurako, which is supposed to a primary reasons for its prosperity. Based on this, we examine the creation of human, physical and social capital through the activities of worshippers. The purpose of this research to examine the development of activities by nonresidents through ko in the area.

     The direct opportunity for establishing Kagurako was a debt-laden shrine report accompanying the reconstruction of the shrine. The earlier efforts of the shrine, increase in worshippers, enhancement of festivals, establishment of the foundation on which the cultural activities of the shrine are based, led to ko and the development of activities as a compounding factor. The above-mentioned efforts include rebuilding and reigniting the tradition of festivals in cooperation with entertainers outside the area, keeping the shrine premises as a sanctuary always clean, and using the treasures and historical resources at appropriate times.

     The Kagurako is not based on the "neighborhood" or the "same belief" traditionally understood as the principle of uniting ko, and is characteristic in offering extraordinary experiences (qigong, yoga, walk, making ceramics and so on) around the shrine in which people can participate casually. The management of ko with these characteristics has led to the increase in activities seen after the Prospering period, and realized in human capital, which supports the festivals, physical capital contributing to regional cultural activities, and social capital bringing external support to the area during a disaster.

     As mentioned, to develop the activities of nonresidents in the area an effective technique is to offer extraordinary experiences in which people can participate casually through "ko" while trying to enhance the religious culture based on the history of the shrine. This can also increase the sustainability of the area where the shrine is located, as can be seen from the fact that several households, attracted by the charm of the shrine, have moved into the village in recent years.

  • CONSIDERATION ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF ENTERING INTO THE AGRICULTURE AT FALLOW FARMLANDS IN THE CONSOLIDATED AREA:- Focusing on the situation of fallow farmlands in the settlement and the community people's interest to entrants -, NAKANO Takashi, YAMAZAKI Yoshito, ADACHI Tetsu, Journal of Architecture and Planning (Transactions of AIJ), 82, (734) 963 - 963,   2017 04 ,  The first purpose of this research is to clarify the relation between the situation of fallow farmlands in the settlement and community people's interest to entrants into agriculture. The second purpose is to clarify what factors have affected the situation of fallow farmlands and interests to entrants. Finally the author considered the possibility of entering into the agriculture. The research methods and results are as below.

     Hayashi's quantification theory type 2 was used for clarifying what has affected the individual farmland use and for quantifying the cultivating condition of the farmland. In that regard, 10 indicators of the cultivating condition were set as the explanatory variable and the farmland use was set as the explained variable. Among 10 indicators, the size of farmland, the slope of farmland and the contiguity with forests influence the result of the discrimination highly.

     The situation of fallow farmlands in the settlement was evaluated by 2 indicators, namely, the cultivating condition of the fallow farmlands and the distribution of the fallow farmlands. The interests to entrants was defined by interviewing the representative of the settlement's agricultural group. Then the situation of fallow farmlands was compared to the interests to entrants. By this method, there is no relation between the two. It shows that the interests to entrants is affected by the social environment of the settlement.

     The appearing process of the fallow farmlands had been revealed by interviewing the representative of settlement's agricultural group. Then KJ-method was used to analyze what factors has influenced the situation of fallow farmlands. The author extracted 4 factors, namely, the irrigation, the location of farmland, the land allocation and the governance capacity of settlement.

     By analyzing the relation 4 factors and the interests to entrants, the following are shown:
     1. The representative of settlements with water shortage tend to have negative interest to entrants.
     2. The representative of settlements near to forests tend to have positive interest to entrants.
     3. The representative of settlements with the strong governance capacity tend to have positive interest to entrants.

     Considering the situation of fallow farmlands and the interest to entrants, the author suggests the following policies: propulsion by the local government, reducing the business risks, integrating some fallow and solidarity by some settlements. Except for settlements which need no entrants, settlements will be able to deal with entrants according as these policies.
     For increasing the opportunity of entering to agriculture, it will be needed that each settlement regards entrants as better partner than now. The author suggests that local governments should enhance “the governance capacity of settlements”.
  • THE UTILITY OF SMALL/MEDIUM SCALE SYSTEM OF WOOD DISTRIBUTION AND MARKETING ON THE VALUE IMPROVEMENT OF PLANTED FOREST:-From the point of view of problem solving and substituting for advantage of conventional wood distribution-, ADACHI Tetsu, YAMAZAKI Yoshito, NAKANO Takashi, Journal of Architecture and Planning (Transactions of AIJ), 81, (727) 1939 - 1939,   2016 09 ,  The purpose of this study is to verify utility of small/medium scale system of wood distribution and marketing on the value improvement of planted forests.

     The research results are following:
     In the central part of Hyogo pref., there are 2 cases picked up.

     In the case of “SHISONOMORINOKI” project, the system is collaboration among companies. The reason why this area is being largest concentrated place of wood buisinesses in Hyogo pref.. The information sharing between main constituents is managed at wood-processing plant of their associations, and the price of stumpage that had possibility to lead to sustainable forest resources management maintained. In the business scale, it was limited that influence to local forestry. In addition, it was substantially confirmed that substitution for advantage of the conventional wood distribution.

     In the another case of “SOUND WOOD(s)” project, the system is that the wood coordinator and forest owners play key role. The reason why this area is having high forest resource availability and high management will of the forest owners. Flow of information is managed by wood coordinator and the price of stumpage is fixed at a high price than that of “SHISONOMORINOKI”. Although the business scale is very small. In addition, it was substantially confirmed that substitution for advantage of the conventional wood distribution.

     As a result, problem solving and to substituting for advantage of conventional wood distribution were substantially confirmed with both examples, besides the business scale. And the utility as the wood distribution and marketing system which contribute to the value improvement of planted forest was confirmed.

     In both examples, those business scale is small. But they raise value of the wood resources by corresponding to tenderhearted consumer needs. I think it is one route to the value improvement of the local planted forest to build complemental relations between small/medium scale systems which raise value of the wood and large-scale systems which solve quantitative problem of forest resource management.
     Also, I think it is important that people who link the distribution from the upper part to the lower part for possibility of the system development in other areas. They have rich information about each stage of wood distribution and have technique to draw value of the wood.
  • A STUDY ON THE UTILISING HOMETOWN TAX FOR THE PROMOTION OF RESIDENTS AUTONOMY:-Focusing on the change of machizukuri system of ”Autonomy Institution of Machizukuri of Ikeda” in Ikeda town, Fukui pref.-, NODA Mitsuru, GOTO Haruhiko, YAMAZAKI Yoshito, Journal of Architecture and Planning (Transactions of AIJ), 80, (717) 2533 - 2533,   2015 11 ,  The purpose of this study is to clarify the constructing of machizukuri system based by residents' activities on hometown tax through a case study on “Autonomy Institution of Machizukuri of Ikeda” in Ikeda Town, Fukui Prefecture.
     The results are the following: "The project to realize a small happiness" which is the main project of "Autonomy Institution of Machizukuri of Ikeda", has served by producing 41 machizukuri activities and encouraged the gradual development of machizukuri activities, which lead to educating the residents to become as actors for decision-making. The member of the “Autonomy Machizukuri Committee”, which is the decision-making organization of “Autonomy Institution of Machizukuri of Ikeda”, has changed from outside contributors to residents. Along with the change of members of the committee, the initiative of decision-making shifted from outside contributors to organization by residents and and machizukuri system by residents has been constructed.

  • A STUDY ON TOPOGRAPHICAL CHARACTERISTIC AND LAND USE FEATURE IN “YATO”, MIKASA Tomohiro, SHIGEMURA Tsutomu, TANAKA Takahiro, YAMAZAKI Yoshito, UCHIHIRA Takayuki, Journal of Architecture and Planning (Transactions of AIJ), 80, (714) 1825 - 1825,   2015 08 ,  The Yato is a landscape unit often seen in hilly zone of South Kanto area. This paper is to clarify topographic characteristics and land use features of Yato in Yokohama City, where numbers of Yato and certain preceding studies of Yato exists. Through the research by GIS and TPI method, statistical measurement and cluster analysis, we found below: 1. Average area of Yato is 4ha and the bottom is almost 1ha that means very compact size of daily walkable environment. 2. The slope angle distributes between 5° - 8° (av. 8.11°) that means not to steep angle good to farming and housing. 3. There are 2 types of Yato ; one is Normal type and the other is Koyato type. Normal type consists of housing at bottom and slope as forest. Koyato type consists of small housing area at bottom and farming fields at gentle slope.

  • A STUDY ON APPLICATION OF GIS FOR MAPPING “YATO” UNIT:In case of Yokohama, TANAKA Takahiro, MIKASA Tomohiro, UCHIHIRA Takayuki, YAMAZAKI Yoshito, SHIGEMURA Tsutomu, Journal of Architecture and Planning (Transactions of AIJ), 79, (698) 933 - 933,   2014 04 , “Yato” is a landscape unit that is horseshoe-shaped flatland surrounded by the hill in three directions. In the hilly cities, such as Yokohama, many Yatos can be seen. Some previous researches mention about the importance of Yato from the perspective of ecological, hydrological, thermal environmental and social aspects. This study aims to developing the method for making Yato map by using GIS and DEM, and also classifying all Yatos based on the land use in Yokohama. By comparing previous researches, it becomes clear that this method is suite for making Yato map. Actually, Yato map is made in Yokohama and 4657 Yatos are extracted. It was also found that about 50% of all Yatos are already developed as low-rise residential areas, and about 30% are still undeveloped, by overlaying Yato map and land use map. Evaluating each Yatos from the perspective of natural and social environments will be needed as a future work.
  • Basic research on the management of reestablished shrines:Vicissitudes of the shrines merged in the early Meiji Period in Wakayama City, Wakayama Prefecture, Morita Ryoya, Goto Haruhiko, Yamazaki Yoshito, Noda Mitsuru, Journal of the City Planning Institute of Japan, 49, (3) 1059 - 1064,   2014 , As the population ages and fewer babies are born, people tend to drift away from each other not only in urban area but in traditional villages. We could utilize the existing regional cultural resources like Shinto shrine for cultivation and maintenance of community. By Jinja seiri (shrine consolidation) policy in the past, the number of shrines got significantly smaller in certain areas. However, some of those lost shrines were reestablished later. In this paper we focus on these cases. The results are as follows: 1) Most of the sites of merged shrines are now used as private land. 2) There are two ways of the reestablishment of the merged shrines; co-finding of parishioners and voluntary funding. There are additional activities contributing to the community at some of the voluntary-funded shrines.
  • THE ROLES OF COORDINATING ORGANIZATION FOR THE EFFECTIVE INFLECTION OF HUMAN SUPPORT:-Focusing on the actual conditions and the problem of green earth center in "Midori-no-Furusato Supporters"-, NODA Mitsuru, GOTO Haruhiko, YAMAZAKI Yoshito, Journal of Architecture and Planning (Transactions of AIJ), 79, (705) 2423 - 2432,   2014 , The purpose of this study is to clarify the roles of coordinating organization of human support in rural area. Through this research of "Midori no Furusato Supporters", the following 3 points became clear: 1)Actual conditions of the Matching of green earth center, 2)Actual conditions of the Supporting of green earth center, 3)Potential usefulness and problems of green earth center. In conclusion, for the effective inflection of human support, the roles of coordinating organization is: In initial phase, (1) :Supporting the construction of system of use, (2): Supplying of outside supporters based on a certain level In continuation phase, (3): Encouraging area to get outside supporter on their own, (4): Reviewing the system of use to match the existing human support system During all phases, (5): Accumulating human network and information as the hub, (6): Supporting in case of emergency
  • ABSTRACTING THE STANDARD UNIT OF YATO FROM SMALL ADMINISTRATIVE UNIT, AND THE FEATURE OF THE UNIT:In case of Kawakami old village, Totsuka-ku, Yokohama, UCHIHIRA Takayuki, YAMAZAKI Yoshito, MIKASA Tomohiro, TANAKA Takahiro, SHIGEMURA Tsutomu, Journal of Architecture and Planning (Transactions of AIJ), 78, (694) 2507 - 2507,   2013 12 , This paper aims to clarify the standard shape character of Yato-topography by classifying the small valleys whose small administrative unit name includes “Ya” that means valley. In the case study area, there are most Yato-topography with following characteristics, the reclaimable fields area is about 1 ha, the forest area is about 3 ha, the entrance width of vale is about 60m, and the distance from the entrance to the end is about 200m. This study declares that basic Yato that is social units units have these characteristics. In other words, Yato is a unit that has fields for mainly agriculture, whose area is about 1 ha, have forest as the water source whose area is three times larger than the fields. In the conventional method for extracting ato that uses the stream order, the areas of Yato units varies widely because of the influence by the fractal form of vales. In the method using small administrative unit for extracting Yato, the areas of Yato units are certain. Therefore, it is considered that the method in this paper is more appropriate.
  • THE USEFULNESS OF CORE HOUSE FROM THE VIEW POINT OF SPATIAL USE SITUATION:-In the case of Talam, Lima Koto Timur, Pariaman where is a stricken area at 2009 West Sumatra Earthquake-, YAMAZAKI Yoshito, ICHIKO Taro, HASEGAWA Shouji, NAKABAYASHI Itsuki, AIJ Journal of Technology and Design, 19, (43) 1231 - 1231,   2013 10 , 2009 West Sumatra Earthquake caused serious damage to mountainous areas. Core Houses were provided for house rebuilding at Padan Pariaman by NGO. It seemed that this core house was inherited from the case of house rebuilding in 2006 Central Java Earthquake. Comparing these two cases, the core house system seems to enhance effectiveness in community rebuilding on the same location. This paper shows the spatial use development and expansion of the core house in various directions at Talam, Lima Koto Timur, Padang Pariaman and shows its usefulness, cost efficiency, appropriateness, impact at devastated area for local people.

  • The system of farmer's shop with function that can contribute to the local community., Journal of The Japanese Institute of Landscape Architecture, 74, (5) 679 - 684,   2011 , This study argues about farmer’s shop with function that can contribute to local community. We thought that local activity was developed in the shop and the shop become local communication place by local residents administrating the shop. These situations have influence each other. Then, in Sasayama city, Hyogo, in rural area, we clarified the distribution of the shop. Especially we selected the shop which was administrated by local residents, we clarified the administration subject, the formation processes, activity for a year and space. And we arranged the shop through the participation condition of administration subject and activity. As a result the shop of having diversity activity has haunt due to easy way of participation condition. The possibility of shop which contributes to the local community is high. And the shop which is strict condition and uniform activity and is easy condition and uniform activity need the participation of various residents and the composition of haunt. As a result activity becomes various and finally we think that the shop contributes to the local community.

  • Forming the subject of inheriting a village from paying attention to the fluid habitation, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (B), We published a book as the result of the study, the title is "Making villages that were lived and inherited". The outline of the contents is as follows: For the continuity of villages, it is necessary to draw the vision of villages to be inherited, changing villages qualitatively. It is necessary to keep people who inherits village strategically. We considered that the quantity of activities in a village could not be reduced if the living people would interchange positively. Then, incidental possibility of appearing a person who live in would spread.
  • Study of "Yato" as resource for improvement of urban life and environment, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (B), "Yato=small valley" that remained in the South Kanto area centering around Yokohama city is discussed and analyzed to make clear its topography, actual conditions, administration related to, and performance in urban life and environment. In Yokohama city, more than 4600 Yatos are counted. A typical basic unit of Yato consists of 2-30 meters high U shaped slopes surrounding lower flat field with dozens of meters' width and mostly 200 meter depth. Some of them are developed as a part of urban area and the others are kept as somewhat green areas. Where the nature is well conserved Yato's environmental and social role and role for urban life is quite remarkable. It is proved that Yato will become precious resources in the South Kanto area for the improvement of urban environment.

  • A study on the trajectory of UK rural planning : Towards development of a rural master plan, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (A), This research aimed to set out trajectories for rural spatial planning connecting the natural environmental systems and socio-economic systems of areas. A spatial plan should be more than a conventional agricultural policy or land use plan. It should include sustainable land use planning and dynamic socio-economic elements of non-agricultural sectors in the area. Three main research findings were as follows : 1.The remarkable rise in Europe of a new interest in 'spatial planning', which is based on the 'relational conception' of "space", at scales from the city-region to the supra-national. 2.The rise of spatial strategies in the UK regional planning and policies, along with the shift from the existing development plans to local development frameworks and community planning. 3.There is dynamism in local and regional governance, from the UK level to local community level. A broader range of political communities are engaged in the decision-making and implementation process, through which the concept and contents of spatial planning have been appearing.
