Rapid environmental change has been concomitant with economical growthand modernization of life style in postwar society of the world. There aremany incognizant or intangible forces on transformation of places causingsuch drastic environmental changes which deprived people of the sense ofattachment to places everywhere. This paper tries to describe the back-ground of transplantation of landscape or landscape transfer' observable asgardenization of public open space in Japanese cities, which is compensatoryconfiguration of the scene of place by reproducing landscape models in man-neristic way based on cultural tradition.Uncontextual juxtaposition of indifferent landuses characterizes modernurban scenes where decision made concerning the design of place lends to bediscontinuous and irrelevant of spatial context. Such decision-making onplace means displacement of landscape value. Their forms of expression maytypify the landscape of aspiration or exoticism, the landscape of futurization(Ralph) and the landscape of retrospection/nostalgia. The first two inevita-bly alienates adjacent places if the results are beyond cultural torrelance/acceptability. Within the degree of liberty, people try to recover the lostscene of lost place only remaining in memory. Local governments producegardenized steets for pedestrians in traditional manner and citizens volun-tarily condense the frontal space of their residence with greenery. Thesedeeds can be ascribable to the group memory on countryside and are re-trieval of the cultural dimensions of homeness of place. This artificial natu-ralization of ordinary landscape to provide coziness or shelteredness for thesake of cultural and mental stability in habitation as well as the personalcommitment to place in making alternative view/visual compensation forhumanized scene, that is, 'alternative landscape' (Higuchi), is the trace ofcontinuity. This attitude of contemplation with sympathy toward the nature is parallelto the prevalence of bonkei (table garden), bonsai (miniaturized tree) andikebana (flower arrangement), which provide substantial sense of cosmosor universality through specificity. The notion of person-in-nature in Jap-anese traditional culture influenced by ancient Chinese culture is trans-formed and superimposed into urban space of rationalistic modernity re-sulting in eclectic landscape of multi-paradigm.
