Interesting trivia: "Massan" and Osaka University


Did you know? ... TAKETSURU Masataka (nicknamed Massan), the protagonist in the NHK drama Massan, studied at the Department of Brewage, Osaka Technical School, the predecessor of Osaka University's School of Engineering.
At that time, the Department of Brewage at Osaka Technical School was the only school that conducted research in brewing and brewing techniques. The school produced Massan and many others who pioneered the modern Japanese brewing industry.
Handai NOW, No. 143, the January 2015 issue, recounts episodes in the life of Massan and Osaka University that were not depicted in the TV drama and introduces the spirit of brewing inherited by Osaka University.
Please take a look at Osaka University's public relations magazine, Handai NOW, No. 143.
