Planned Exhibits Society 5.0 TOWN

Become a partner and co-create a “2030 township”

Society 5.0 TOWN is a planned area for developing a “2030 township” at the exhibition venue with the participation of several firms, mainly frontrunners in the service industry. Society 5.0 envisions a future society where people, things, and information are variously and freely connected so that people can live, work, and play more actively. This requires nothing less than co-creation using the leading-edge technologies of many different industries and businesses. Join us in creating the role model township of the future so that visitors may experience the next-gen society and appreciate how our lives will evolve through Society 5.0.

Planning Concept

What Society 5.0 will be realizing is a town of the future, set in the year 2030.

Included will be such urban utilities as energy, transportation, infrastructure, and disaster prevention; commercial services such as distribution and retail; and other services such as medical treatment, entertainment and lifelong learning opportunities. The Co-Creation Zone will offer practical ideas for this future society, which will come into being thanks to co-creation based on the technologies and knowhow of many industries and businesses.
