Vice-Minister of the Environment, Naomi Tokashiki visited the Fujisawa Sustainable Smart Town on Nov. 9th (herein after called as Fujisawa SST).
After having an outlined lecture of the Fujisawa SST project, the Vice-Minister and her team visited many of our facilities. They visited our model house, “Future Co-Creation FINE COURT,” opened this August, our facility for health, welfare, and education called the “Wellness Square,” opened in April, and “Community Solar,” located in the public space. Furthermore, they observed the experimental demonstration site, “Green Air Conditioner,” which alleviates the summer heat in the open space, and provides comfort for heat-island phenomenon. During the site tour, they were diligently listening to our staff attendant’s explanation.
Ms. Tokashiki, Vice-Minister of the Environment, has previously served as Vice-Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare. She was particularly interested in our activities, especially in the field of environment and health. She asked many questions about the town’s future development, and she greatly appreciated the Fujisawa SST project.
The Fujisawa SST Council will accelerate its efforts to increase awareness of the smart town, which will last for 100 years.
