2023 Themes & Participants
The 2023 SEED Program is centered around the revitalization of regional culture and economy of rural Japan, specifically Yamanashi. Yamanashi is rural and relatively unknown abroad, but has an abundance of high quality luxury goods and tourist destinations that make it an ideal setting for the SEED Program. It is on this basis that the themes for the 2023 SEED Program were selected: Sake, Wine, Jewelry, and Textiles.
