Kyoto Prefecture Government and the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) Kyoto published on 3 August an English-language brochure “Innovation Capital Kyoto” as part of their concerted effort to demonstrate the global competitive edge as a startup-friendly city.
The brochure casts Kyoto as the innovation capital in a holistic manner, highlighting its tradition and culture with a history of over 1,000 years, wisdom accumulated in about 50 universities, and innovations introduced by Kyoto-based world-renown enterprises.
