  • Fukuoka the part of Kyushu, has developed a variety of ITS / ICT with the development of public transport network and road network. It is also a popular area for sightseeing.
  • 1.5 million people live in Fukuoka city. We think there are a lot of cities of the similar scale in Asia. A city of Fukuoka freed from a former heavy traffic jam and the action of traffic measures can be expected to be useful for each city of Asia.
  • Fukuoka has good access from Asian countries and all over Japan and has convenience comparable to Tokyo and Osaka as a place to exchange information.
