What will be


the future of Japan?

Concerns

What will be a social problem in future?

Japan is said to face various social issues, such as population decline, declining birthrate, and an aging population, plus energy and environmental problems. It’s estimated that by 2036 one in three people will become an elderly citizen. It is predicted that this will negatively affect society, and there is growing concern regarding labor shortages due to the declining birthrate.

In addition, technology will increasingly spread to various situations of everyday life. But on the other hand, cyber-security threats and the importance of energy and communications backups (in the event of disasters) will increase. It is necessary to develop sustainable solutions while addressing these issues.

Solutions

How can we solve it?

Advanced technology and innovation hold the key to solving these issues. For example, automation by A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) and robotics can lead to innovative ideas such as self-driving cars. Telemedicine can be made possible through improved communication networks, plus improved image and sound quality, to allow doctors to examine patients remotely. There are places in Fukuoka where various innovations can be implemented.

What is FUKUOKA Smart EAST

In order to develop sustainably while working to solve various town-planning issues (such as a declining birthrate and aging population), we will attempt to create a model city – something, we can be proud of in future. To pioneer this development, we will start with a town in Hakozaki. It will be comfortable, with a high-quality lifestyle and urban space, supported by state-of-the-art technology and innovation.

Smart City
Fukuoka City

Fukuoka (福岡市 Fukuoka-shi) is the capital city of Fukuoka Prefecture, situated on the northern shore of Japanese island Kyushu. It is the most populous city on the island, followed by Kitakyushu. It is the largest city and metropolitan area west of Keihanshin. The city was designated on April 1, 1972, by government ordinance. Greater Fukuoka, with a population of 2.5 million people (2005 census), is part of the heavily industrialized Fukuoka–Kitakyushu zone.


Fukuoka DC

Fukuoka Directive Council (Fukuoka D.C.) is the industry-academia-government-citizens joint Think & Do tank. We shape the new future of Fukuoka and strengthen its international competitiveness through strategic planning and implementations for growth. We focus on Fukuoka Metropolitan area as a core and drive potential business projects in cooperation with Kyushu and neighboring Asian regions.


Fukuoka Smart East Promotion Consortium

Fukuoka City participates in “Fukuoka Smart EAST Promotion Consortium”, which was established by Fukuoka Directive Council (FDC) in August 2018.

In order to develop sustainably while working to solve various town-planning issues (such as a declining birthrate and ageing population), we will attempt to create a model city – something, we can be proud of in future. To pioneer this development, we will start with a town in Hakozaki. It will be comfortable, with a high-quality lifestyle and urban space, supported by state-of-the-art technological and innovation.

The Consortium will undertake market research of projects that lead towards the realization of FUKUOKA Smart EAST. This will include the consolidation of knowledge from private companies, with demonstrated experience of experimenting with advanced technologies.
