Abstract

Although terrace seating is widely recognized as a contributor to urban liveliness, in Japan it is strictly restricted by regulations. This paper examines two types of outdoor seating in Tokyo: cafés in Daikanyama located on private land plots, and Japanese-style taverns in Yurakucho illegally located on the public street. The results show the spatial characteristics and actual usage of these two types, and suggest the necessity to develop guidelines adapted to diverse urban situations in order to support street life.
