Four industries of Kyoto leading the world

The triangle of “Tradition” , “Wisdom ” and “Innovation”
has created and supported key industries in modern Kyoto.

“Life Sciences”, “Tourism”, “Manufacturing” and “Contents” are the four key industries in modern Kyoto.

“Life Sciences” are represented by iPS cell research in regenerative medicine, while “Tourism” enables visitors to experience ‘good old Japan’ in Kyoto, as one of the largest treasure houses of historic and cultural sites in the world.

In “Manufacturing”, the skills and spirit of craftsmanship that have been nourished in traditional industries have developed state-of-the-art technologies that create our present and future life.
Kyoto has also been the place of origin for the movie industry in Japan, and this culture has developed the rich “Contents” industry ranging from manga and anime to video games.
