About the conference:
Japan offers culture, products, and services that are recognized around the world for their unique characteristics and distinct qualities. In June of 2010, the Japanese government announced a new strategy for growth which places importance on promoting and sharing uniquely Japanese qualities with the world in the form of “COOL JAPAN”. Examples of COOL JAPAN include: the youth fashion scene in Shibuya & Harajuku, cutting edge consumer electronics of Akihabara, Manga & Animation with engaging story-lines, and delicious cuisine emphasizing seasonality, quality ingredients & presentation.
In order for Japan to promote and share COOL JAPAN with the world, it is necessary for Japanese citizens to rediscover the COOL qualities of Japan for themselves.
The Tokyo conference will provide a forum for individuals and businesses from a variety of categories to come together for the purpose of rediscovering COOL JAPAN, generating new ideas, exchanging perspectives, and discussing approaches to the promotion of COOL JAPAN domestically and internationally.
