2013 Icho FESTIVAL

2013-5-2 (Thu) - 2013-5-3 (Fri)

This year's Icho Festival is being held on Thursday, May 2 and Friday, May 3! The Icho Festival is a celebration of welcome for new students to the university, but it is also a great opportunity to strengthen friendship and ties among faculty, staff, students, and the local community.

Our program this year once again offers a wide variety of events to deepen the understanding of education and research taking place at Osaka University not only for faculty, staff, and students, but also for high schoolers, local community members, and persons visiting our campuses for the first time.

We look forward to welcoming you to this festival!


  • Events sponsored by the university -- Open Houses at certain facilities, exhibitions, movies, lectures, etc.
  • Events sponsored by official Student Groups (stalls selling things, stage performances, indoor events, athletic meets, exhibitions, etc.)

The printed program is not ready for download yet -- please check back soon.
