This paper investigates the influence by people's directional consciousness on the formation of the suburbs residential area. Residential areas have spread out in the suburbs of Osaka since the end of the Meiji Era. When people chose the residential area, they tried to avoid the residential area in the direction of the northeast that is "unlucky quarter". In addition, in order to overcome the common superstition of "unlucky quarter" held by people, the developer who developed the residential area took advantage of the religious power of Buddhism to invite temples.
