Yatsugatake Creative Connection

A  hub that connects local issues and creators

In our office, various consultations (regarding issues/thoughts) received from the local area are matched with members of our office with diverse skills to team up to create projects in hopes of solving local issues.

There are also opportunities to help benefit the local community even whilst living in the city.


Our Two Approaches To Solving Regional Issues

Supporting Ideas:

We try to listen to thoughts and issues from the client and support ideas that may lead to solving the issue. Depending on the idea, it may lead to directly creating a project.

Skill Support:

Create projects with skilful creators and receive orders to help solve problems.


Past Projects Created From The Office:

Long established agar manufacturing product planning

The Japanese Southern alps salt youkan (Traditional Japanese treat)

Website design for “Kabochan Farm”
