TOUR 1: Kansai Science City

Keihanna (officially known as the Kansai Science City) is nestled in the green Keihanna hills stretching over Kyoto, Osaka, and Nara prefectures in Kansai. The city, which has been constructed and maintained under the Kansai Science City Construction Act, is one of Japanʼs national projects – much like the Tsukuba Science City in the east of Japan. Twelve cultural and scientific research districts (about 3,600 ha) scatter the 15,000 ha of land that makes up the Keihanna Science City. It could be an interesting model for those AJBCC members who have an interest in Sydney’s Western Parkland City and Aerotropolis
