In recent years, Japan's population has continually decreased and grown older. It is widely believed that centralized urban housing will play a vital role in the future design of cities. With the needs of elderly citizens in mind, this research focused on the creation of a walkable urban environment taking into account the distance people are satisfied traveling to and from urban facilities. Focusing on the distance traveled to these facilities from the perspective of residents, a functional evaluative model for residential areas was successfully created, and key indicators for the evaluation of residential environments identified. This functional evaluative model was then applied to regional areas, and the present state of the overall residential environment was evaluated. This research finds that residential districts located closer to downtown areas rate more highly than those placed farther away.
