The project brings a diverse set of people together to exchange and interact with each other in Nihonbashi, the historical business center in Tokyo, and aims to expand space business and create new innovations in space and on Earth.
Today, space-related businesses are increasing around the world.
Space is not only a new industrial field,
but also has unlimited potential to solve various problems on Earth.
X-NIHONBASHI is a project that will contribute to the expansion of space-related businesses
by providing places and creating opportunities
that Japan’s biggest property developer Mitsui Fudosan Co.,Ltd. recommends.
It will bring about innovations on Earth by promoting co-creation activities with a diverse number of players
from the industrial, academic, and public sectors who gather at Nihonbashi.
Mitsui Fudosan (X-NIHONBASHI) and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) have jointly developed and manage the X-NIHONBASHI Global Hub—a global matching program aimed at promoting cooperation between Japanese and overseas companies in the field of space. The program also encourages actors who are in unrelated fields to enter the space field.
