Vision

Computer technology and the internet have dramatically changed how people work, communicate and live. But to date, the communication between people and the computer has been trapped in small, square screens.
VR has the power to alter people's lives, and our interaction with technology.

Japan VR Summit aims to gather and connect leaders who attempt to facilitate such a future. Let us co-create the emerging market. We are indeed excited for the prospects of new businesses and products that may alter human history.
