The Fuji-no-Sato Residents Association was the only formal organization among the residents. It was formal in the sense that (1) it formally represented the interests of all residents vis-à-vis the management and was recognized by both; (2) its membership was in effect mandatory; (3) representatives were selected in a systematic way; and (4) each representative was assigned a specific position on the Executive Committee. This chapter examines the significance for social integration. Significant changes in the association's activities and functions were observed during the course of the study.
