Potential of Okinawa : Tourism (Vacation), Agriculture (Farming), Natural Food (Well-being) + Financial City

There is only potential in Okinawa.
Vacation : Okinawa has become the largest resort destination for Japanese people who dream of traveling overseas due to the weak yen. Currently, Chatan and Yomitan in the central part and Onna Village in the northern part are well known, but in the future, development in places like Nanjo and Itoman in the south, where Speedy Resorts, which I am building, is located, is expected to flourish. The problem is that there are no international hotels in Naha. And when visitors to Naha decide which beach resort they want to visit, they have to rent a car to go to the central part of the city, which is an hour away, or to the northern part, which is almost two hours away. Many car rental agencies have gone out of business in Corona, leaving most tourists without a “leg up”! This must be remedied as soon as possible. In case you are wondering, Speedy Resorts is offering free use of Mercedes Benz to their guests.
Farming: The fertile tropical land, spreading from north to south, is ideal for agriculture. Speedy Farms, which currently owns a total of one hectare of land in seven locations, plans to produce blue bananas, mangoes, olives, kiwis, caviar limes, etc., and to create a post-harvest network centered on Okinawa, not only in Japan but also in Taiwan, Shanghai, and Manila, and to export these products using the weak yen as a weapon. Cheap labor is also an attraction. What about moving away from the MAFF policy here and establishing a law that makes it easier for companies to start farming? Unfortunately, currently, only successive generations of farmers can farm throughout Japan. This is increasing the amount of abandoned land and is causing the decline of agriculture. If Okinawa could promote large-scale corporate farms, it could become an agricultural superpower on par with the Netherlands and Australia.
Organic : Many medicinal herbs that once supported healthy longevity counties will become core products of wellbeing.
It is also a treasure trove of other foods that support longevity, such as bitter gourd and loofah. For more information, please refer to and read the following blog post.
However, due to the penetration of American culture, Okinawa now ranks near the bottom in longevity. Late-night steak, not late-night ramen, is rampant. Burgers, French fries, etc. have increased obesity. We need to raise awareness about improving health.
Currently, Okinawa has the above three. Tourism, agriculture, and natural foods are to be expanded, but I, for one, would like to see them look at new industries.
I think. That is, Okinawa could aspire to become a “financial city” like London, Singapore, or Hong Kong.
Okinawa can become an advanced financial city in the future. Why not create an electronic special zone like Palau or Estonia and issue its own digital currency? To do so, it is necessary to promote a large number of digital human resources. Collaboration with OIST, the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, where intelligence from around the world is concentrated, should also be considered. In addition, Naha Airport should be opened 24 hours a day, aiming to become an international airport surpassing Narita and Haneda Airports. Furthermore, more convention centers should be built in Naha to attract business people from all over the world. In the past, when Las Vegas was in decline, the construction of a convention center successfully increased business use and subsequently brought back tourists. Why not follow that concept?
Thus, for the first time in 30 years, the weak yen can make Japan and Okinawa great again. In the past, a strong yen exhausted Japan and encouraged companies to expand overseas, but the current depreciation of the yen can reverse 30 years of stagnation.
Japan currently holds about $1 trillion in U.S. Treasury bonds. The effect of the yen’s depreciation is estimated to be at least 30 trillion yen in foreign exchange gains. In other words, the Japanese government is making a huge profit by weakening the yen. The government can use the foreign exchange gains without touching the principal.
The 29 trillion yen supplementary budget announced today will come entirely from the general account, but the prime minister is unable to do so because of his incompetence, even though emergency economic measures could be implemented using this weak yen source of revenue. The lack of study by the leaders is further ruining Japan. It is precisely because the yen is weak that Japan can rebuild itself. Without such a leveraged monetary policy, Japan’s national strength will continue to decline.
I will do what I can to make Okinawa a model case for the revival of Japan.
