Kaga City aims to realize “Smart City Kaga,” which solves regional issues and improves the quality of life of citizens through the social implementation of advanced technology. In March 2018, it declared the formation of a “blockchain city” for the first time in Japan, and the government is working on city development that leads the introduction of advanced technology. In addition, in November 2019, a memorandum of friendship and exchange was signed with the city of Haapsalu in the Republic of Estonia to deepen exchanges with the electronic nation of Estonia. In May 2021, we announced the “e-Kaga citizen system (Kaga version e-Residency)” that we aim to create (*1). Since then, the penetration rate of My Number cards has become one of the top in Japan, and in addition to promoting the construction of a digital ID infrastructure, in April 2022 it was designated as a National Strategic Special Zone “Digital Rural Health Special Zone” to play a leading role in the Digital Garden City National Concept. .
In the future, we would like to work on smart cities that utilize Web 3.0 in order to further accelerate the development of e-municipalities that represent local cities in Japan. This time, we have announced the “Kaga City Web 3.0 City Concept”, and we have implemented measures unique to Kaga City, which aims to create a population of 1 million people, such as special measures as a national strategic special zone and support services for zero-cost entrepreneurship (* 2). In addition to making Web 3.0 engineers and creators widely known, we will support and support Web 3.0 initiatives in Kaga City in carrying out the demonstration of the e-Kaga citizen system, which will be announced to the press before this event. We are holding this event because we want to start laying the groundwork for the promotion of environment and community formation.
The content of the event consisted of a presentation on the “Kaga City Web 3.0 City Concept” by Satoshi Yamauchi, Chief Digital Officer of Kaga City, and a guest, Mr. Hironao Kunimitsu, CEO of Financier Co., Ltd. He will talk about the current situation and the potential for regional revitalization. In addition, the discussion was titled “Web3.0’s potential for regional revitalization and strengths unique to the region”, and the themes were 1. “Web3.0 x regional
revitalization” and 2. “Web3.0 x Kaga City”. and separately. Discussion guests include Mr. Shusaku Hayakawa, Representative Director of Ryukyu Astida Sports Club, which is working on regional revitalization through sports, and the Representative Director of Blockchain Strategic Policy Institute Co., Ltd., which contributes to the development of the blockchain industry and industry. Mr. Keiichi Hida and Mr. Fumihiko Kawamura, President and CEO of Kogia Co., Ltd., a startup within the Sony Group and a contractor for the e-Kaga Citizen Project, will join us to delve into the theme.
We will implement the contents not only in Kaga City but also in other areas as a reference for regional revitalization. Instead of focusing on solving immediate problems, this is an event where you can get hints for creating new initiatives by capturing the present through “backcasting (*3)” from the future you want.
