This paper is a complete revision of one previously circulated under the title ‘How Important Is Land as a Production Factor for Japanese Manufacturing Industries?’ An earlier version of this paper was presented at the informal seminar in honour of Professor Saito held at Kobe University. The author is grateful to the participants at the seminar and two anonymous referees for their helpful comments and suggestions. This research was partially supported by a Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (19330044) from the Ministry of Education and the Japan Economic Research Foundation. All remaining errors are, of course, my own.
