Abstract

A Dezukuri in Japanese literally means farming away from the village. It was the main subsistent farming type in the Mt. Hakusan area, Ishikawa Prefecture, and had disappeared quickly during the 1950s and 1960s, due to the rapid economic growth in Japan. The AA. examined the natural environment and the preferred sites of the Dezukuri in Shiramine Village of the Mt. Hakusan area with GIS and remote sensing. Processes of abandonment show that natural disasters were a main cause before 1965, whereas after 1965 it was topographic factors and the accessibility to roads
