"Natural Disasters and the Housing Problem in Japan" (in Japanese)
AbstractWe have several lessons from the recent "Higashi-Nihon-Daisinsai," a big earthquaqe and Tsunami occurred in 2011.3.11. After the last natural dissaster, the central and local governments asked the Housing Companies to make a large number of temporary houses within two-to-three months. We review that events and evaluate what had happened then critically. We point out several issues including the possible use of statistical extreme valyue theory on the housing problem with possible natural dissasters.
