In 2008, Japan met its population’s peak and entered an era of population decline. There are residential areas that were developed with population increase now suffers from population decline and an aging society. This problem has led to an increasing number of vacant houses and vacancies which finally brings us to a lack of both crime and disaster prevention. As an index of city vitality, it would be important for each city to maintain its population. It would be considered effective for each city to understand population recovering districts to adapt population influx and outflow. This study aimed to understand actual land use status and acquire data to adapt population influx and outflow. As results, (1)There were 31 population recovering districts within 2000m range from railway stations. (2)Population recovering districts dotted the metropolitan area, so there was no relationship between population recovering districts and distance zone and Densely Inhabited District and 400m range from railway stations and Zone Sector. (3)There was a population recovering district in area where transportation is inconvenient. It obtained interesting results from actual land use status of the districts. (4)In population recovering districts, we obtained interesting results of actual land use status of land that has been modified to hold more than one single house after dividing ground, and apartment house construction. Therefore, population recovering districts have large enough area that would be divide ground.
