Abstract

This paper aims at showing the numerous gaps between the ideal concept and reality in the reconstruction process after the Great East Japan Earthquake and the following tsunami within 2 years from the disaster. The gaps are mainly attributable to the misunderstanding or incomprehension of spatial planning by the local government, which puts too much weigh on acceleration of the planning process and lacks in preparation to deal with the disaster in the ordinary time.
