In the wake of the recent devastating earthquake in Japan, the Japanese government is exploring the idea of building a “back-up” city for Tokyo. The idea is that if disaster were ever to demolish Tokyo, the government could continue to function by moving to the back-up city. The back-up is named Integrated Resort, Tourism, Business and Backup City (IRTBBC). It will sit 300 miles west of Tokyo. In addition to being able to house the government, it will also include offices, resorts, casinos, and parks. IRTBBC would hold 50,000 residents and a workforce of 200,000. At this point the plan is still just a concept that will be further explored.
