For Ota River flowing though Hiroshima City, the national, prefectural, and city governments together developed a framework called “A Lagoon City of Hiroshima” in January 2003 to take progressive approaches toward the regeneration of a lagoon city in the green river area expanded in the postwar period. In this framework, three pillars of “to use,” “to create,” and “to connect” are provided to take the lead in social experiments in waterfront utilization and conduct waterfront restoration activities with the collaboration of citizens, companies, and government.
