Abstract

By studying and comparing the urban planning of China and Japan, this paper discusses the main problems in building sustainable urban development in China and gives some corresponding solutions. In terms of general planning, China's green space indicators are too simplistic and quantitative, lacking in multi-dimensionality and perspective. The layout planning of green spaces is not scientific enough. At the management level, urban planning and greening in China are very passive. Despite the creation of large areas of green space, the quality of these green spaces is not guaranteed. In the absence of relevant laws and regulations, these green spaces are not sustainable and can easily be threatened with demolition. In order to combat these problems, a more effective urban management system should be established, and modern technology should be used to assist in the management of green spaces, with more input from the public in the planning process.
