Since more than ten months have passed since the earthquake occurred, and demolition and clearing of damaged buildings has been underway to a relative extent, peace is retuning to the damaged towns. Temporary shops and houses were established and construction of regular buildings is also starting in some areas. However, the conditions in damaged areas vary, and in some areas it is difficult to build even single-family houses. In many districts, the citizens, in order to improve these difficult conditions, have gotten together to form Machizukuri Organizations, with the purpose of going from reactivation to restoration. It is said that the number of organizations formed is over 75. I, a consultant who has been involved with machizukuri in many places, am not only overwhelmed by this number, but also can imagine that people who are in charge of the management of Machizukuri Organizations have worries. I want to write my view of the situation and the roles of Machizukuri Organizations based on my own experiences so far and also give a cheer for the organizations.
