Why Fukuoka is Japan's most innovative city

In Japan, the city of Fukuoka has positioned itself as the country's Silicon Valley. The government has renovated an old school in the central Tenjin business district to create Fukuoka Growth Next (FGN), a one-stop shop for budding entrepreneurs which opened in 2017. The government is also in the process of creating an ambitious new “smart city” – an urban area that uses technology like IoT and data analytics to enable smarter service in areas like transport, utilities and government – on a 124-acre former university campus within Fukuoka, just 2.5 miles (4km) from the centre. These developments indicate that smart cities are not only good for residents, they can also set a high-tech atmosphere that is good for innovation.
