Monitor participants hear directly from researcher Mr. Homma of Yukiya Eizan Shoten about the WDC concept, behind-the-scenes stories about its launch, his thoughts on Risetsu, and future prospects.
Visit the WDC and the attached experimental building. We were able to get a first-hand look at the expanding snow utilization business, such as farmed eels and processed snow foods.
Mr. Tanigawa from the Bibai City Board of Education guided us through the local history of Bibai, which prospered as a coal mining town, and we learned more about the WDC concept from the history of the industrial revolution.
Visit the Japan Heritage “Mitsubishi Bibai Coal Mine Shaft Tower”. The population, which was over 90,000 at the time, has now fallen below 20,000.
This tour is a learning-type tour created jointly with Bibai City by Asuno System, which operates the portal site “CO-MIT Commit
(https://co-mit.jp)” that specializes in searching for corporate training and training camp facilities. It’s workation. In this program, there are few vacation elements such as sightseeing, gourmet, and activities that are often seen in ordinary workcations. The purpose is to break down the traditional culture, and we believe that it will be an opportunity for the “development of innovative human resources” that companies are currently looking for.
With the history of Bibai City, which flourished as a coal mining town, and now suffering from population decline and aging, we will examine and refine through monitors whether participants can lead to their own thinking from the future they aim for. We will continue to raise

This monitor tour is scheduled to be held for the third time in late January 2023. Although it will be a demonstration experiment, Asnosystem will make maximum use of this as a company that creates tomorrow, and will proceed with preparations while cooperating with Bibai City to invite full-scale participation from metropolitan areas from next fiscal year. We would like to promote it as a sustainable initiative to help regional revitalization.
■ What is the White Data Center (WDC) concept?
WDC utilizes cold energy from snow to reduce cooling costs for servers, while also reusing waste heat from servers for agricultural facilities, etc., creating a heat business network centered on data centers and a new industrial cluster. By doing so, we aim to create an energy independent + industrial cluster creation data center that is unprecedented in the world, coexisting with a recycling-oriented society and contributing to the local economy while promoting local production and consumption of energy.
