This chapter examines the changing nature and patterns of East Asian practices on family support and reciprocity. It uses the housing dimension to explore the flow of support, but looks beyond the conventional nuclear family households to include three interrelated generations within families. It identifies changing strategies and practices of family relations to cope with the wider and rapid structural changes taking place in the region. It notes that the analysis of the empirical data is focused on a comparison of two dynamic cities in East Asia — Tokyo and Shanghai.

Keywords:   East Asia, family support, reciprocity, housing, family relations, Tokyo, Shanghai
