Abstract

The Tokyo lowland has suffered from natural disasters several times due to its vulnerability. Land subsidence and intensive landuse are likely to increase the amount of damages. On the other hand, investment in natural disasters prevention has the effect of decreasing damages. The main countermeasures for earthquakes and the refuge plan are two problems which need to be examined in the disaster-proof city planning. - (SGA)
