THE NETWORK CITY

THE EXPANDING SPHERE OF LIVING, INCREASING MOBILITY THROUGH HIGHWAY TRANSPORTATION, RAILROAD TRANSPORTATION, AVIATION AND MARINE TRANSPORTATION LEAD TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NETWORK CITY FOR ALL OF JAPAN. IT IS REASONED THAT IF THIS LINEAR MOTORED RAILWAY SYSTEM, NOW UNDER DEVELOPMENT WAS PUT INTO USE, ITS 500 KM/HR SPEED WILL MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO BRING ALMOST EVERY CORNER OF JAPAN WITHIN A REACH OF A 3-HOUR TRIP. THE AUTHOR CONTENDS THAT A COMPACT NETWORK OF COMMUNICATION IS TRANSFERRING THE WHOLE NATIONAL LAND OF JAPAN INTO A SINGLE LIVING SPACE COMMON TO ALL PEOPLE WITHIN THE COUNTRY. FUTURE CITIZENS WILL LIVE IN A VERY LARGE AREA COMPOUND WITH FULLY DEVELOPED NETWORKS OF TRANSPORTATION AND COMMUNICATION. JAPAN'S LAND OF THE FUTURE IS PICTURED AS A SINGLE URBAN COMPLEX, CALLED THE NETWORK CITY. THE NETWORK CITY.
