Personal Profiles:

Not from technical background, but an enthusiast of the maker movement and Shenzhen. Currently working for regional think tanks that try to encourage revitalization of Kyushu island and establishment of its position as a gateway city of Japan to Asia. My vision is to set up innovation hubs in Kyushu and any other resourceful regions of Japan, and connect them with Taiwanese and Chinese hardware entrepreneurs who seek stable and trustful manufacturers.
