stt NEED OF CITY PLANNINQ
>Japaneee Municipal Authorities Awpw.e
to Dangers Connected With Con.
geeted Centers of Population.
The remarkable expansion of Jap
anese cities during the last few years
bus accentuated the urgent necessity
of city planning. With this end in
view a conference of the mayors of
the leading Japanese cities hus oc
curred at Tokyo. Among .those present
were the mayors of Osaka, Yokohama,
Nagoya, Kyoto and Kobe, while Tokyo
Swl'lMB iratf w
4,lu Tokyo, city planning was set on
foot twenty years ago, about the same
time the question of city planning was
receiving attention in Europe and
America," said Doctor Sekl, mayor of
Osaka, In an Interview with u Tofcr ?
Yomiurl representative. "In Osaka,
however. It is only a few years since
tlie problem began to claim SerlouH At
tention, although the necessity of city
planning In Osaka is perhaps more ur
gent than In other cities. The density
of population In Osaka Is certainly
greater than in other places and Im
provement In sanitary and other mat
ters is urgently needed. It is esti
mated that the population of Osaka
twenty years hence~rvill be 2,630,000
and that of the two neighboring dis
tricts 2.30/),000, making a total of 5,
000,000. This estimate is bitsed on the
present rate of Increase, but it is pos
sible the rate of increase may be
larger. Herein lies the urgent nuture
of city planning for Osaka."
