This chapter describes the location and facilities of Fuji-no-Sato, which is located on the Izu Peninsula, about two hours by express train southwest of Tokyo. The peninsula has been developed as a major tourist attraction and resort for Tokyo area residents. Most of the resort section had already been developed at the time Fuji-no-Sato was planned, but sufficient land was found along the lower edge of this tract, near the village. The structures of Fuji-no-Sato conform to the upper-middle-class social image that the surrounding area seeks. The thirteen buildings, painted white, brighten the community with reflected sunlight. Fuji-no-Sato has 288 residential units in ten buildings. Four units were occupied by the staff, and two or three were reserved for guests and other temporary needs. As of October 1, 1982, 281 units were occupied by 372 residents, of whom approximately 230 to 250 lived here full-time.
