Best known as being the home of the Tokyo Disney Resort, Urayasu was a fishing village during the Edo period and a major center for the production of "nori" (think edible seaweed) and "hamaguri" (a common oriental clam), plus "asari" (a Japanese cockle). All of these ingredients are essential components to traditional Japanese cuisine. It has an estimated population of around the 163,258 mark and suffered greatly during the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami with damage costing the city about 73.4 billion Japanese Yen to repair. Coworking has appeared in the city's streets to cater to its tech savvy youth dreaming of taking advantage of what the Japanese Government has put up for grabs.
The government has set aside about one billion in public funds by way of both loans and investments over a five-year period to achieve commercial development on the moon. Startups that qualify will be able to receive funding for such things as research costs and to cover the price of patents. Not all are chasing the cow that jumped over the moon, as many startups are getting into health care, agritech Internet of Things, enterprise software and artificial intelligence.
From dreaming of space unicorns to maybe just getting a bit of work done, coworking venues are the place where the locals are hanging out, sharing ideas and getting their dreams into the space of reality whether it is on the moon or not.
