Abstract: On 11 March 2011, a great earthquake with a magnitude of 9.0 destroyed most of the rural areas along the Pacific Coast in eastern Japan, which suffered from depopulation and aging problems since before the earthquake. In this paper I will discuss the reconstruction plan of depopulated rural areas from the viewpoints of transportation infrastructures, residential areas, agriculture, forestry, fisheries, consensus building, and nature restoration. We have to take a ‘backcasting’ approach for a sustainable development, which is the planning strategy that will lead to successful outcomes. An organisation and a platform to support the planning process is necessary to build a consensus within the area.
