Katsura Innovation Park           桂イノベーションパーク地区

Home to many top class learning institutions, Kyoto has a lot going for it besides temples, shrines, and geisha.  Let's take Katsura Innovation Park, located in the western part of the city, as a prime example.

Funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), the Katsura Innovation Park is part of the Kyoto Environmental Nanotechnology Cluster.  As a premier institution, the park is occupied by JST Innovation Plaza Kyoto from the Japan Science and Technology Agency, MYCOM Co., Ltd., Sanyo Chemical Industries, Ltd., Kyoto University Katsura Campus Venture Plaza, and Pharma Foods International Co., Ltd.

Looking for collaboration opportunities with not only domestic companies but foreign companies as well, the park is prepared to offer funding and other means of support to anyone considering the park as a future location of business or as a research and development center.  With probably the highest concentration of academic resources and brightest young men and women in the nation, the city of Kyoto can offer so much more to potential business investors besides the typical cultural experience while in town.
