Among the most typical functions which are suburbanizing these days are the retail functions. This phenomenon is analysed from two sides. The index of population specialization in the retail function of each administrative unit (cities, wards, town and villages) is calculated. The change of the commercial districts where consumers in the metropolitan area go to buy is examined. The results: the retail functions of most units in the suburbs are supplying all the demand of their population. The commercial districts at the core of the central cities however maintain their position. And it is the retail function of the units in the inner city, except for the cores, and the units at the edge of metropolitan area that are stagnant. The monocentric structure of the Keihansin metropolitan area is declining.
