Various previous galaxy surveys have revealed that different types of galaxies show different spatial distributions. By comparing their clustering strengths, we can investigate the relationship between the environments where galaxies reside and the properties of galaxies. This provides us vital information on when, where, and how galaxies are formed. In this study, we focus on FIR-selected galaxies from AKARI All-Sky Survey, which are considered to be dusty star-forming galaxies. We measure their power spectrum and compare our final result with previous studies using different galaxy samples detected at other wavelengths. It is found that there is the very clear wavelength dependence of the clustering strength.
