The city known for its "saw-tooth" roof structures, Kiryu sits in the Gunma Prefecture with a population of around the 114,924 mark.

Japan is changing its view on entrepreneurship and today's graduates are not afraid of the stigma of failure any more. Once upon a time being adventurous and going alone or with other tech savvy souls was the Plan B for many youths who were scared of not having a job. Today it is the opposite, with many leaving their corporate positions to found their own companies or to join other startups.
Japan does lag behind China and Silicon Valley, but the future holds a more positive outlook. For those with big ideas, it appears that health care, agritech Internet of Things, enterprise software and artificial intelligence are the popular niche markets to get into. Coworking venues are offering the support and the collaborative environment where creatives can get busy doing their own thing.
