Abstract

Because of the high degree of urban development in Japan, rural populations have continued outward migration, causing a gradual decline in rural areas and the number of landscapes possessing historical and cultural value, thereby severely impacting the appearance of the overall landscape The Japanese government proposed the Landscape Law in 2004, designed to promote the shaping of positive urban and rural landscapes and realize the "Beautiful Nation" concept and 'Tourism-based Nation" policies. Taiwan also currently faces identical problems; the Construction and Planning Agency, Ministry of the Interior is promoting the establishment of a Landscape Law that has not been passed by the legislature. Thus, this study compares the Japanese and Taiwanese Landscape Laws from the perspectives of the legislative promotion process, regulatory and legislative system, and framework level by reviewing Japanese and Taiwanese literature relevant to landscape concepta Furthermore, this study proposes recommendations for the future promotion of the Landscape Law in Taiwan This study hopes that the establishment of the Landscape Law will facilitate the active improvement of current environmental landscape issues at various levels of government, address the neglect of the public toward landscape beautification and maintenance, and cultivate residents to habitually appreciate and beautify the environment.
