Woven Cityの完成イメージ(鳥瞰図)

Toyota Woven City will be a place for co-creation, for inventors and residents who share our value and passion to invent something new "for others".

Toyota aspires to transform itself from an automobile company into a “Mobility” company. The goal is to expand the meaning of “movement” which has been to move people from point A to point B, such as by automobiles, to being able to also "move the heart" through free, efficient, practical, and enjoyable mobility of people, goods, information and energy.

Woven City features roads, plazas, stores, offices, and residences – resembling a real-life city where inventors and residents can co-create new ideas, products, and services. The various support provided by Woven City will accelerate the development of technology and service innovations that will redefine the future of mobility and lead to wellbeing for all.
