Regional industries of Japan are stalled with no way out, since their direction and position to take have not been clarified. However, the regeneration of regional industries should be proposed to dispel the sense of stagnation that exists throughout Japan. Regional regeneration strategies have been discussed based on a wide variety of approaches including sociology, urban design theory, and the community theory. Yet only a few attempts have been made so far at local industrial regeneration strategies taken by entrepreneurs. Therefore, this article attempts to present a strategy to compare and consider the case where there have been a local industrial regeneration entrepreneur. With respect to local industrial regeneration strategies, this article considers that it is necessary to overcome Innovator’s Dilemmas that exist between the local industrial regeneration and regional industry individuals, to narrow down the regeneration range, to have external entrepreneurs not known to the region strangers, and to redefine regional industries.
