LIMITS OF MAJOR BIG CITIES
These are the published proceedings from the Urban Problems Discussion Conference, September 1974. After identifying the special characteristics of Japanesee urban problems, the wall to wall population in the city, and lack of room for expansion within the city limits, the discussion focused on two possible solutions 1) expanding the city boundaries, and 2) decentralization of city functions. In order to formulate a resolution, inquiries into the historical past of the cities and their present plase in Japanese politics and economy are made. To untangle the over-congestion and large problems in Tokyo, the possibility of moving the capital is discussed. Projection into the future of big cities and the future responsibilities of the governments of major big cities are made.
