Editorial Reviews


Professor Shigeru Itoh
Japanese Urban Environment is the book of its kind in English literature and...should attract the worldwide interest of scholars, researchers, and urban designers.

Professor Norman Pressman Sch of Urban and Regional Planning, Univ of Waterloo
...this must be considered a landmark book. In fact, it constitutes the most comprehensive analysis ever undertaken that is currently available. This work is...indispensable to anyone concerned about the future of large-scale human settlements building upon the lessons of Japan. It...will be an invaluable resource for scholars and practitioners. It is impressive in scope and very important, thus making a unique international contribution to the existing literature on urban development.

Professor Daniel Jones The Pennsylvania State University
...The breadth and depth of the view provided by this book is impressive and convincing in demonstrating the qualities that distinguish Japan's urban centers from their Western counterparts. This well-organized book is written by leading Japanese professionals and scholars and it offers many lessons worthy of the attention of those who are concerned with the urban quality of life.

Kuniko Fujita
... will be extremely helpful to urban practitioners, providing detailed social and technical knowledge of Japan's urban environment as well as an examination of the historical and cultural factors that have helped to develop the distinctiveness of the Japanese urban environment.
Urban Studies
Sir Peter Hall
Ranging over a wide range of subject matter, from air and water quality to energy use, transportation and telematics, Japanese Urban Environment is an important collection for any worker in the field.
