As the president of one of the oldest and leading universities in Japan, let me extend to you a warm welcome. Kobe University has been pursuing academic endeavor in the exploration and practice of novel theories under the spirit of integrity, freedom, and cooperation ever since the foundation over a century ago.
We have always been committed to the creation of knowledge in a broad range of fields from Humanities, Social Science, Natural Sciences to Bio-Medical Sciences. The intellectual curiosity and the inquiring mind of each faculty member have continually advanced the level of researches since the foundation. In the area of education, faculty and administrative staff members united their efforts to collaborate on ways to prepare a better learning environment from the students' viewpoint.
