Currently, no country is looking to create a dynamic landscape where technology and heritage converge other than Japan. Surely, this can open a path toward limitless creative horizons for creators, artists, and culturalists.
It is evident throughout the history of trends that music, art, and culture are the best ways to bring massive adoption. Blockchain technology is something that not only empowers these creative industries but also establishes their longevity in the world. And Japan understands it well!
