This chapter examines the management of a park and green sites in Fujimaki Town, Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture, as one example of urban neighborhood landscape complex units with rich green sites. Fujimaki Town is located in the eastern hill of Nagoya, which has rich secondary forests primarily comprised of Quercus variabilis and Quercus serrata. These are the most common vegetation types in the secondary forests of Satoyama landscapes located in the central part of Japan. This town is designated as a park area in urban planning, but is not well-established due to financial difficulties of Nagoya City. In recent years, more than 400 people and 200 households live in Fujimaki Town. In this chapter, the landscape management of secondary forests by municipalities, volunteers, and residents is clarified and a future sustainable management scenario will be considered from the viewpoint of labor accounts of secondary forests.
