AbstractHokkaido, the north island of Japan, has a climate very similar to southern Ontario and uses basically the same materials for house construction as are used in Canada. It is of interest, therefore, to examine all aspects of housing in this part of Japan and to make comparisons with Canadian conditions. The policies and regulations affecting the Japanese housing industry are discussed as well as the factors influencing production. Finally a description of housing production techniques completes the report.
