Japan's population will begin a dramatic decline in 2006 with an associated regression in the economy. At the same time it is imperative to improve the quality of inner urban areas. Here, de-suburbanization and social capitalization of land are proposed as dual strategies to address these problems. The goals of this dual strategy are to create a regional planning and development system which will be continuously improved by the citizens whilst satisfying the need for sustainability.
