Abstract

The holistic land use planning process might contribute to reduce the risk of natural disaster and mitigate climate change. This also reduces huge national budget waste for reconstruction and social care after disasters. The aim of this study was to reveal the lessons derived from 2011 Tohoku Earthquake, Tsunami, and the Fukushima nuclear accident. The history of 2011 Tohoku disaster area's land use planning and actual land use change was analyzed. This found that destroyed developments by 2011 disaster have an essentially similar issue; bad repercussions of the myopic decision making structures. It suggests that holistic decision making with interactive land use planning process is important.
