Kashiwa Festival

In Kashiwa City of Chiba Prefecture where Kashiwa Campus is located, the Kashiwa Festival takes place around JR Kashiwa Station in July every year. The Graduate School of Frontier Sciences participates in "Kashiwa Kogyo Matsuri" in this festival, with medaka (small "rice-field" fish) scooping games and introductions of our research to strengthen our ties with the local area. For the development of science, we believe that it is essential to go out and talk with the local people about science and be a part of the local community.
