Japan's Ministry of the Environment says pack the cities even tighter
I lived in Japan for two-plus years, and I found cities to be much more centralized than America or, in some places, Europe. Train stations were hubs of economic activity, with restaurants and shops everywhere you turned once you got out of the train (compare this to your local Amtrak station). Making sure future plans keep people and the things they need - the report also suggests incorporating natural areas like greenways and waterfronts - even closer together seems like a sensible idea to me.
