“Mini Osaka” draws its inspiration from an event, “Mini Munchen,”
held in Munich, Germany. Only children (i.e. no adults) are allowed to
plan and create their own city in this event.
I have organised “Mini Osaka” since 2007. By now, I have communicated
with approximately 2,000 children and have supported their city planning.
I am highly concerned with the fact that a large number of Japanese
children today spend most of their time in their own houses. Lack of
interpersonal communication outside their home can lead to negative
psychological affects. In fact, a research conducted by OECD shows that as much as 29.8 per cent of Japanese 15 year-old children feel they are isolated; the highest figure among 25 developed countries.

to tell children that every single person can create the social community and you are the
part of them. This is our vision and purpose.

Children elect their mayor and decide the rules like their own law in
They can be whatever they want, for example, running a flower shop and restaurant, or
