Four. Comment from Takeshi Hasebe, Shibuya Ward
渋 In 2020, Shibuya Ward is hosting a major milestone, such as hosting the world’s largest events called the Olympic and Paralympic Games, opening Miyashita Park, which is being renovated as a new urban space, and 100 years in the Meiji Jingu Shrine. Shibuya Ward, which is aiming for Shibuya in a world where diverse people gather and constantly fosters possibilities, is excited to launch this project to update entertainment using a new technology called 5G. Last year, more than 30 companies will participate in the foundation established by KDDI, Shibuya Future Design, and Shibuya City Tourism Association, and we believe that open innovation can be further accelerated.
Making use of the ideas, technologies, and services that each have, using Shibuya-ku as an experimental site, letting many people experience new culture creation, and transmitting the ever-changing charm of Shibuya to Japan and abroad. I expect
that’s all
