The Fuji-no-Sato Residents Association was the only formal organization among the residents. It was formal in the sense that (1) it formally represented the interests of all residents vis-à-vis the management and was recognized by both; (2) its membership was in effect mandatory; (3) representatives were selected in a systematic way; and (4) each representative was assigned a specific position on the Executive Committee. This chapter examines the significance for social integration. Significant changes in the association's activities and functions were observed during the course of the study.

Keywords: Fuji-no-Sato; retirement communities; social integration; aged; elderly
