Kawasaki is endeavoring to establish itself as a “21st century innovation hub” dealing with “health, medical and welfare” issues affecting all humankind.

The core of this effort is a base for open innovation named “KING SKYFRONT", located in Kawasaki Waterfront.  We are proud of convenient access from Haneda Airport located on the opposite bank of Tama River.

This video introduces various dreams of several researchers working at  KING SKYFRONT.  Passionate researchers all have their own dreams, each with a distinctive color.  For example, red symbolizes passion, blue is like the water of a quietly flowing river, and green is a gentle soothing color.

We hope you will know attracting multi-colored dreams realizing at KING SKYFRONT.
