Invited lecture at Urban Narratives Conference: "Narrative Methods for the Analysis and Design of Urban Atmospheres" The objective of this Conference is to investigate, through the prism of narrative, dynamics of appropriation, representation, and self-representation of the urban space in modern and contemporary Japan. The Conference aims to decipher now globally acknowledged cityscapes such as those of Tōkyō and Ōsaka, considering the interaction between politics, economy, information, culture, and urban planning, and the impact of these multiple—and often competing—forces on the welfare of society and on the individuals’ imagery of the city, with an eye also toward domestic and international tourism.
