Abstract

This paper analyses housing policies in Tokyo and Seoul from comparative perspectives. First, unlike production, the state in Japan and Korea has not played an active and effective role in the housing sector. Second, the state in the West has been more concerned about housing than Japanese and Korean states, and the local state in the West has also pursued more independent housing policies than the Tokyo and Seoul Metropolitan Governments. Third, in spite of their similarities at the macro level, Japanese housing policies have been more quality and equality oriented than Korean housing policies.
