Inside Kashiwa-no-ha: Hitachi Smart City near Tokyo


Sara Gardner of HDS visits the dentist

Sara Gardner, chief of strategy social innovation at HDS, takes a trip to Kashiwa-no-ha’s children's dentist.

The Hitachi Smart City, located near Tokyo, includes a dentist for children which is themed on a fairytale castle. To eliminate fear, after treatment children have the opportunity to dress up.

Kashiwa-no-ha Smart City is a collaboration between government agencies, universities, research institutions, Mitsui Fudosan and Hitachi.

Located just outside of Tokyo, the city aims to provide an environmental-symbiotic city, a city of health and longevity, and a city of new industry creation.

Hitachi provides area energy-management solutions that operate, monitor, and control energy across the city.
