Hiruzen Seminar House

Hiruzen Seminar House was closed at the end of March 2016.

Osaka University has Osaka University Hiruzen Seminar House on the Hiruzen Highlands as a welfare facility. There you'll be able to enjoy the natural beauty of the changing seasons. In a fair weather, you can also enjoy grilled beef or lamb outside.

The Hiruzen Seminar House is located in a lovely natural setting and can be used throughout the year. Moreover, there are many sports facilities in the neighborhood. It is hoped many OU members will make use of this facility for sightseeing and recreation with their families or groups.
