Abstract In this study, the satisfaction and needs of child-rearing households concerning parenting-friendly housing environments in Japan and Korea were compared and analyzed. Utilizing quota sampling, an online panel survey was conducted on child-rearing households in Seoul and Tokyo in December 2020 to compare the characteristics of Korean and Japanese urban dwellers, respectively. The results indicated a difference in satisfaction for individual housing units while demands for design elements related to health and safety were common in both Korea and Japan. The need for exterior spaces where children could safely engage in outdoor activities within housing complexes was high in both countries. Regarding the location environment, the demand for an educational environment was high in Korea, whereas the demand for proximity to commercial facilities was high in Japan. Therefore, the diverse preferences of the two nations regarding individual housing units, exterior spaces, and the location environment must be considered when planning and constructing housing complexes.
