In the 1996 academic year, we decided the following three research framework : first, comparative study of regional systems focused on metropolis among Japan, Europe, America, Asia and Africa is pursued, second, integration of spatial analysis of geography, structural analysis of Marxian economics and quantitative analysis of modern economics attempt to be integrated, and third, dynamic investigation of systems in Japan is undertaken. In the 1997 academic year, according to the framework, mentioned above, each researcher conducted fieldwork and obtained the results referred to in the publication list of this report. In the 1998 academic year, we investigated Kinki region as the common study area in order to achieve results of integration, and accomplished the following five major findings.
First, Kidai and its vicinity have so far been regarded as the area of Kinki region as an element of national land system in ancient Japan in the Taika era (645-650) and the Tenmu era (672-686). It sh
ould be demonstrated, however, that Kidai centered on Ohmi in the Tenchi era (662-671), which bore military character in charge of the extent surrounded by the three barriers, was also important.
Second, it is conjectured that capital located in ancient Kidai did not consist of single metropolis, but of plural metropolises. Such a point of view is similar to current discussion concerned with movement of capital functions in today's Japan.
Third, from a careful examination of development of the Honganji denomination, a religious society in the end of medieval age, it is made clear that the denomination diffused from the core area to its neighboring areas and, finally, to distant areas such as Hyogo and Wakayama.
Fourth, with transformation from the Shogunate-and-han system (followed from ancient goki-shichido regionalization) to modern national system, regionalization based on prefecture was established.
Fifth, although modern Osaka area originally extended in western half of Japan, the area has gradually been reduced to the area of Kinki, mentioned above. Moreover, while unity of daily urban areas, constituents of Kinki region, has weakened, their integration into Osaka area or Kyoto area has been under way. Less
