The consequences of this research are summarized as follows.

The means of lot area in the Japanese-style house, traditional house, western-style house, and shop house lots are 99.5, 168.3, 177.8, and 151.5, respectively. The mean of the front-side ratio in the Japanese house lots is 0.70, and that in the shop house lots is 1.28, while that in each of other two major house types is around 1.0. The house lots are typically approached through either alley with a width less than 4m or flagpole-shape lot, except the shop house lots most of which are approached from wider roads.
