Document title

The historical transformation of the urban structure of Akita (Anglais)

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The A. aims to show how the current urban area of this prefectural city of Japan has been changed from its original castle town and to interpret the process of this change as transformation from the mosaic structure planned and built by a feudal lord to the structure which has grown in a piecemeal and unplanned manner under a variety of influences. Attention is focused on the historic core of today's Akita, the original castle town site, and then the changes of land use of the city have been reconstructed based on various historical maps and writings. - (KA)
