Science Café at Osaka University Dental Hospital vol. 3 - "Not Just Alps and Cheese! Talking About Switzerland, One of the Most Advanced Sightseeing Nations in the World"

2016-11-18 (Fri) 16:30 - 18:00

The Science Café, run in collaboration between Kaitokudo for the 21st Century and Osaka University Dental Hospital, hopes to encourage light conversation on various scientific topics. In each session, speakers will provide attendees with information on various research performed at the university. But you don't need to have any prior knowledge on any of these topics! What you do need is curiosity and simply to enjoy light conversation. Let's spend an enjoyable Friday evening together with some delicious food and drinks.

Speaker: MORIMOTO Keita (Assistant Professor, Graduate School of Letters, Osaka University)

It's unlikely that there are many of you who don't know what Switzerland is. But I'm sure that when many of you are asked, "So what kind of country is Switzerland?" you may not be able to come up with much besides cheese fondue and the Alps. In actuality, Switzerland has been an advanced tourism nation since the 18th century. I'll talk about the history of Switzerland as a tourist destination, a history that can also be applied to the challenges of tourism in modern Japan. (Interviewer: HIGO Konomi/Kaitokudo for the 21st Century, Osaka University)
