Recently, Japan with the increase in the cases of using the existing building structures for welfare purposes in recent years is displaying diversity in types of the use of the facilities prior to and following the conversion. In this Study, as the initial stage of the case survey study, cases of the conversion of the facilities such as retail stores into day service center and residential facilities for the elderly were collected and analyzed through literature review and internet search by limiting the search to Japan. In consideration of the realities in Korea in which the cases of conversion of the existing structures into welfare facilities for the elderly are forecasted to increase, it is anticipated that analysis of a diverse range of cases would provide highly useful reference at the time of conversion of use into welfare facilities for the elderly.
