What is the safest land for housing?

If you are planning to buy a plot of land, what type of land would you prefer in terms of ground strength and low disaster risk?

Hills, plateaus and terraces are less prone to flooding and have relatively strong ground, making them suitable for housing. However, areas where there is a risk of landslides or valleys in the plateau are not suitable for residential areas, so it is advisable to check the flood hazard map and landslide hazard map published by the local government.

Low lying areas and reclaimed land are often soft ground. The records of the Great Hanshin Earthquake show that the damage caused by earthquakes on soft ground is particularly pronounced when compared to areas on strong ground. This should be borne in mind.

Landslides can also occur in locations at the foot of mountains. In particular, places which are at the exit of valleys are prone to disasters and are therefore undesirable as residential areas.

When choosing a plot of land, it is advisable to look at the topography of the surrounding area and determine the characteristics of the land before making a decision.
