The implementation of the “The three cities” – safe city, diversity, and smart city – has been accelerated in the Smart Tokyo Implementation Strategy.
In addition, it promotes Digital Transformation (DX), which further improves peoples’ everyday life by using digital technology.

Safe City:
Real-time monitoring of weather conditions and the ability to collect disaster information at the time of its occurrence enables quick response to providing information regarding actions to be taken for preventing disaster, thereby reducing damage and achieving early recovery.

Diversity:
Anyone will be able to receive customized and detailed essential services such as classes that use AR/VR and telemedicine in island areas anywhere and anytime, regardless of their location, age, gender, or language.

Smart City:
The digitalization of everyday life services, such as the spread of automatic driving, cashless societies, and tasks will free us from complex daily tasks and enable us to live a comfortable and vibrant life.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government will implement various measures across all of Tokyo in FY 2020 (the second year of Reiwa) as the “first year of Smart Tokyo”.The following initiatives use VR/AR.

Diversity: Tokyo Smart School Project

Information spread across schools is converted into data, visualized, shared, and analyzed in mutual cooperation to implement customized education for each student.
We plan to run demonstration experiments that use 5G AR/VR and improve Wi-Fi service in metropolitan schools.

Smart City: Creating Entertainment using State-of-the-Art Technology
