Abstract With the recent issue of empty houses emerging as a social task, various policy measures have been proposed to tackle the problem. In the case of renovating empty houses, it needs to emphasize the aspects that can be viewed from a larger perspective, including the value of architectural assets and the revitalization effects of local areas. Korea is still in the stage of understanding the current situation of empty houses. But Japan has been facing this empty house problems faster than us, and have attempted to accumulate a series of successful examples of empty house regeneration as local assets in collaboration with private sector. In case of Onomichi City, Akiya Bank(Empty House Bank) plays a key role in the revitalization of empty houses. Renovated houses are also used not only as a center of community space for culture and arts activities, but as a catalyst for local commercial revitalization. From the result, it is necessary to provide policy supports for enhancing the value of empty houses through private activities while providing a professional and active view on regeneration of empty houses as architectural assets.
