Method for calculating theoretical price is described in footnote 8. 7 Prices of Selected Residential Sites in Japan Location Areas bordering on the Chuo Line Yotsuya Nakano Ogikubo Kichijoji Musashi-Koganei Areas bordering on the Toyoko Line Shoto Nakameguro Jiyugaoka Hiyoshi Theoretical Price (Y10,000/m2) Market Price (Y1O,OOO/mz). 2 71 51 46 36 64 73 49 "Market price represents GBMPs reported in 1987 (residential land within the radius of one kilometer from the nearby railway stations). bEstimated rents for apartments are based on advertisements carried by Shukan Jufaku Joho (Weekly housing news), September 1987 (those units located within a distance of fifteen minutes' walk from nearby stations).

This implies that the supply of space for urban use is not particularly low as compared to other countries. To summarize, Japan, contrary to widespread belief, still has a surplus of land. This suggests that if the degree of land utilization is raised, many, if not all, of the problems associated with land will evaporate. 2 Distortions in the Tax System The above argument suggests that what matters are social and economic factors rather than physical or natural factors. The most important is that people regard land as an asset.

7. Again, the actual price is about twice as high as the theoretical price. From these findings, we can conclude that land is valued considerably above its theoretical value. The difference between the theoretical and the market prices can be interpreted only as arising from excessive expectations for capital gains, namely, a speculative bubble. 4 Estimation of the Bubble Using a Regression Model Another way to examine the existence and the magnitude of the bubble is to estimate a land price equation and to regard the difference between the estimated and the actual price as the bubble.
