An Industrial Base for Rediscovering the Landscape

Keihin Industrial Area

Boasting the unique scenery of an industrial zone with a high concentration of different production facilities, the Keihin Industrial Area is one of the most prominent developments of its kind in Japan. The area was completed in 1928 due to the businessman Soichiro Asano’s great foresight and half a lifetime of effort. While keeping pace with changes in the industry, including various ups and downs related to a series of wars and serious setbacks caused by pollution-related lawsuits, the development constantly worked to bolster the Japanese economy. In recent years, this type of scenery has attracted renewed interest and been imbued with new value, making industrial sites popular sightseeing spots.
