It is observed in many large cities in the world that the temperature of the central part of a large city is warmer than that of its suburbs. This phenomenon is called a heat island. Figure 1 shows a heat island phenomenon in Tokyo (Yamazoe et al., 1998). The temperature of the central part of Tokyo is higher than that of the suburbs by three degrees in August 1997.
