Abstract

The traditional landscape of Nara Basin, archetypical of the Japanese conception of space, is shaped by a development of hydraulics. The relative "water-deficiency" due to middling hydrological conditions but made wase by population growth, had from old times created a paddy-field irrigation system which was particulary complex and complicated, even for Japan. After the war, the development of the Yoshino-river, which is near the Nara Basin, was to ruin this collective organization by permitting an abundant, free and individual irrigation| by the industrialization but partially recovered by the ever-growing urbanization, while the agriculture paradoxically regimes more in its struggle for higher productivity.
