Gestion de l'eau et production du paysage dans le bassin de Nara (Japon)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



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.
