Cities in japan have a lot of challenges under a new phase of population decline. We, not only the national and local governments, but also stakeholders of towns, such as companies, residents, TMOs and NPOs need to collaborate and cooperate to manage cities. I hope to study city and town management together from an academic and practical point of view.
