Why is it a regional design now? The word region does not mean just a word-only region. For example, in France, in Japan, it is a term that indicates a regional cultural area or regional economic area where about four prefectures are gathered. The big city of Paris is also included in one region. In the centralized sense of Japan, big cities and local communities are clearly separated, and big cities are called consumption areas and local communities are called production areas. This view is very short-circuited. We recognize that it is difficult to find the value and seeds of a region from the industrial and economic categories. Today, Japan is called an economic powerhouse or an industrial nation, and it can be said that this was due to the accumulation of culture and technology in the regions of the previous era. If you compare Japan to your body, you can say that the area is a limb and an eye. Using their limbs and eyes, they have played a role in developing values, seeds, and culture, and driving Japan's society, culture, and economy. However, traditional communities are on the verge of survival, making it difficult to inherit culture and technology. We believe that the role of regional design is to promote regional culture, regional resources, and regional value by grasping the region from the perspective of the region and developing the design.
