Soka Renovation Town Development

The Soka renovation town development has been promoted around the east exit of Soka Station.
The project led to the initiation of nine projects from the renovation school, making good use of under-utilized real estate, and the total of 16 business were created, including those started by owners themselves.
Taking the opportunity of the opening of Tokyo Adachi Campus of Bunkyo University, the project of renovation town development expanded to the area around Yatsuka Station.
People attached to the town are taking actions in the illumination project organized by the council of volunteers in the Yatsuka east area, in the revitalization of the shopping streets and in the staging of "Yatsuka Yamori-juku," where citizens themselves re-think about Yatsuka and about its future.
During this fiscal year, the "Renovation School @ Yatsuka" will be held to discuss business plans, aiming to solve issues of developing the community and to commercialize the projects.
