Spatial Pleasure

Re-Optimize the City

through Decarbonization of

the Transportation Domain


Spatial Pleasure's vision is to "build a meaningful urban civilization."
Currently, 40% of cities are dominated by transportation infrastructure, such as roads and parking lots, which do not create any meaningful value for us.
By optimizing transportation from a carbon perspective, we can transform parking lots into parks, streets into coffee shops and bars, and create spaces that enhance the meaning of our lives.


Spatial Pleasure is developing DMRV (Digital, Measurement, Reporting, Verification) software to certify and measure carbon credits for transportation operators contributing to the decarbonization of an area.
Through collaboration with bus and bicycle-sharing operators, our aim is to decarbonize the entire region by quantifying the environmental benefits of each transportation operator and issuing carbon credits.


Through interviews with domestic and international planners, transportation operators, developers, researchers, and other stakeholders involved in urban development, we will determine the key parameters for each city and formulate them based on data and algorithms.

Analyzing Cities from Various Parameters: Interview with Stephen Law (UCL/The Alan Turing Institute)

The importance of data utilization and analysis in understanding cities has long been recognized. However, it is not enough to simply rely on data alone to improve the urban environment. The challenge lies in determining what data to use, how to analyze it, and how to translate it into meaningful change. Implementing data-driven practices can be particularly challenging. To gain insights into this matter, we spoke with Stephen Law from The Alan Turing Institute, who was formerly associated with Space Syntax and has extensive experience in various projects.

Unveiling the Value of a Local Train Line: Exploring New Possibilities for Public Transportation in Maniwa City, Okayama Prefecture

The Himeji Line is a local railway line that stretches from Himeji City in Hyogo Prefecture to Niimi City in Okayama Prefecture. This particular line, primarily utilized by local students, has recently drawn attention after JR West disclosed that a section of the line is operating at a loss. As local railway lines throughout the country face financial challenges due to declining birth rates and an aging population, the future of the railway system becomes a topic of concern. To explore fresh possibilities for public transportation beyond the debate of whether to shut down the line or not, a discussion took place involving Tetsuhiro Mifune and Kodai Masaki from the Living Environment Department of Maniwa City in Okayama Prefecture, Kazuki Fukumoto from Fukumoto Taxi, a transportation service provider in the city, and Soma Suzuki, the representative of Spatial Pleasure.

An Ecosystem of Cross-Corporate Data Analysis to Reform Public Transportation in the Congested City of Jakarta

Chronic traffic congestion poses a significant social issue in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. JakLingko, an initiative that integrates public transportation data, and Nippon Koei, a Japanese general construction consulting firm, are collaborating to address this problem through the utilization of data. In the rapidly developing city of Jakarta, how are these two companies working together to harness the power of data?
