Unique Aspects

The Minoh Campus Legacy

Resshi no Hi (cenotaph for those fallen at war)

This monument, located in the rear of the Memorial Hall on the current Minoh Campus, was originally built for the repose of the souls of 5 graduates from the School of Foreign Affairs (a predecessor of Osaka University of Foreign Studies) who lost their lives at war. This monument will be relocated to the new Minoh Campus.

 *You can see this monument on the current Minoh Campus until Friday, October 9, 2020.

World Clock

Osaka University of Foreign Studies, which was built in Osaka City in 1949, had no clock tower. This clock was installed on November 11, 1999 (Heisei 11) as a monument to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the university’s move to Minoh in 1979.

As is fitting for a university of foreign studies, the large ceramic face dial features an Osaka-centered world map drawn by azimuthal equidistant projection.

This beloved symbol of the campus, which is often used by students as a meeting place, will also be relocated to the new Minoh Campus.

*You can view this clock on the current Minoh Campus until Sunday, December 6, 2020.

 Thank you, Minoh Campus!
