Abstract

The coastlines of four major islands of Japan total about 18 000 km. Most of the coastal lowlands are now so intensively used that a large proportion of the Japanese coast has been artificially modified, only 49 % of the major islands'coasts remaining natural in 1979. Especially after the 1960s, a large proportion of the Japanese coasts had changed to much extent and now protected with huge amounts of groins, breakwaters, seawalls and dikes made of concreates.
