About CPIJ

Summary

The City Planning Institute of Japan (CPIJ) was founded in 1951 with the goal of promoting research into the science and technology of urban and regional planning. That vision has expanded to include contributions to academic study and culture through further development and growth of urban planning as an academic field; in the half-century since the end of World War II, our members have continued to report their research findings, promote knowledge exchange and communications both among members and with other related professional groups, as well as participating in research, surveys, and other international projects with colleagues around the world. CPIJ was officially recognized under Civil Code 34 in 1968, and functions as a corporation in the public interest under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and Science.
