As it ages at a pace unprecedented in the world, Japan is undertaking urban development through the activities of academic institutions and citizenry to accommodate a fast-aging society. Our vision is for everyone to live safe and healthy in familiar urban environments, with retirees leveraging their skills and knowledge to participate in society.
Town Health Station
We plan to undertake an array of health initiatives. They include preventive medicine facilities, health services as part of the Healthcare Innovation Project (HIP) of an academic-industrial alliance with The University of Tokyo, and regional health support from the City of Kashiwa. We will position this station as a benchmark in a city of health and longevity, offering easy access at any time to residents.
The Kashiwa-no-ha Smart Health Project visualizes the daily health of residents. The project links such digital health devices as wristband data recorders and communication function-enabled smart scales to a health data analysis system that displays users’ health statuses on their PCs or smartphones. Users can obtain detailed health information around the clock, even on their sleep patterns, as well as basic data for such factors as exercise amounts, calorie consumption, and body fat mass.
Happappa Exercise Time originated at the Kashiwa-no-ha Campus City by bringing together university professors and artists from various fields. The activities are based on the science of exercise physiology, and are designed to stimulate the body and mind. There are regular exercise classes and team competitions.
