Designing Fukuoka Smart East
Fukuoka Smart East is poised to be the smart city of the future where innovation and comfortable living meet. Fukuoka City, while compact, is rich with natural elements and bustling urban spaces. The city is appealing for many reasons, including being heralded as "The Startup City" and one of the most livable cities in the world.

However, as with many areas in Japan, the declining birthrate, aging society, decreasing population, and environmental issues are at the forefront of many peoples’ minds. Taking a proactive approach to these issues, Fukuoka Smart East aims to create a futuristic city where comfortable living and innovation intersect to make a sustainable city. As smart city initiatives are launching both in Japan and overseas,
Fukuoka City is ready to take on the challenge and develop the future of urban redevelopment.

Building the Future of Fukuoka
Just as the community needed innovative startups to turn Fukuoka into a startup city,
Fukuoka Smart East's community development requires input. To succeed, the project needs contributions from local community members, field experts, and those who are passionate about cutting-edge technology that will solve social issues.
