Although the population has increased due to the construction of condominiums, there is no mechanism to improve the quality of life in the external space, and I felt the need to create a mechanism for regional revitalization.

Arashiyama Dream Project 2013 ~Arashiyama Story as a Souvenir~ [Kyoto Saga University of the Arts] Ukyo Ward Arashiyama, which is bustling as one of the most popular tourist attractions in the Japan, does not have souvenirs called Arashiyama specialties.

We would like to use this as an opportunity to create assets shared by the community by sending a new design wind to Arashiyama with the fresh sense of students, providing souvenirs suitable for Arashiyama as it should be.

This year, there were 33 applications, and 22 organizations that passed the first round gave presentations. Of these, several projects were selected as subsidized projects (up to 300,000 yen / 1 project), but all of them were wonderful initiatives for regional revitalization.
