The Industries of Hiroshima Prefecture

Printer Friendly Show Posted Date:2011年12月1日更新

Material production, processing, parts, and assembly industries are concentrated in Hiroshima Prefecture,providing important products for the steel, automobile, ship, electronics, and general machinery industries.
The prefecture’s automobile product and materials industry amounted to roughly one fourth the value of all products shipped from the prefecture in 2005.
Thanks to advancements in these leading industries, Hiroshima is home to a number of makers known nationwide (e.g. safes/vaults, sporting balls, etc.).
Furthermore, industries (furniture, koto, brushes, etc.) whose tradition is inherited from as far back as the Edo Period are also present, adding to the diversity of the prefecture.
Hiroshima Prefecture aims, by fostering new industries such as environmental and information technologies, and by focusing our efforts on the technical advancement of the current manufacturing sector, to develop a cluster of industries competitive in the international market.
