Large-scale green space planning in the Tokyo Metropolitan Area was formulated in 1939 with the "Tokyo Green Space Plan," and a greenbelt was proposed, however the plan was cancelled due to the end of the war. In 1958 the "First Capital Region Plan" was formulated, and a greenbelt was again proposed, however the second and later plans became plans that approved of urbanization. This paper focuses on the Capital Region Plan, and aims to (1) organize changes in green space planning in the Tokyo Metropolitan Area, (2) analyze the circumstances of urbanization of the area designated a greenbelt in the First Capital Region Plan, and (3) extract issues regarding green space planning in the Tokyo Metropolitan Area
