Osaka University Alumni Reunion in Nagoya

2017-9-23 (Sat) -

We are happy to announce that the "Osaka University Alumni Reunion in Nagoya" has been planned for Saturday, September 23. This is the second Alumni Reunion held outside of the Osaka and Tokyo areas following the Alumni Reunion held in Okayama last year.

We hope to share the present and future of Osaka University with you and strengthen the OU network that is spreading throughout Japan. The venue is located in a convenient location only a 1-minute walk away from JR Nagoya Station, so we hope that alumni from not only the Chubu and Tokai regions, but from all over Japan, will join us.

However, registrations will be accepted at the door, so please come directly to the venue if you wish to attend.

We'll hear about Ms. Moriki's passion for sake as a female toji, or chief brewer, at her brewery.
