Professor Itami wrote chapter 4, “the current situation and future image of suburban stations”. He also noted “suburban residential areas developed as a commuter town is vastly transforming into a variety of residential areas. By finding the value of railway lines or railway stations that have suburban residential areas nearby can be useful for future measures to regenerate and grow. It shows how it could be or should be in the 2020’s.”
