Abstract: The central part of Kanagawa prefecture adjoining metropolitan Tokyo, and facing the Sagami bay is called the Shonan area. Since the 1950', the area's mild climate, abundant greenery and easy access from the metropolitan area has made it an 'urban resort', but its rapid urbanization and popularity as a tourist resort have also caused environmental problems. Therefore, Kanagawa prefecture has decided to implement the Shonan Nagisa Plan in cooperation with local towns and cities in order to maintain the natural environment and enhance the potentialities of each district in the 21st century.The plan is long-term, comprehensive and district-oriented. In this paper, we shall introduce the overall concept of the Shonan Nagisa Plan including concrete projects and prospects for the future.
