Future food Japan
In collaboration with our project partner Tokyo Tatemono, Future Food is building a sustainable food ecosystem in the Kyobashi area of Tokyo known as Kyobashi Living Lab.
Through a series of interactive and impact-focused programs and activities, we strive to build a dynamic community comprised of individuals, organizations, and companies committed to sustainably improving food systems in Tokyo and beyond.
Tokyo as a whole, and in particular the Kyobashi area, has a rich food and cultural history. We aim to highlight and support this history while also embracing innovation and the future of food via global exposure and local interaction.
