COE for Education of Mountain and Natural History Science

(FY 2018-2022, MEXT Joint Usage Education Centers)

The diverse subject of Mountain Science, which covers biology, agriculture, earth science, and environmental science is set on the fields of various mountain areas and is open to university and graduate students nationwide. It is divided into the fields of mountains, forests, grasslands, and satoyama (foothills). We hope you’ll join in engaging directly with living organisms, and discovering the nature of the mountains, and the efforts of people. Mountain Science education is offered in the form of open exercises, commissioned exercises, and research instruction. This education takes place at field stations. Please see the overview of field stations below for details regarding the location of each field station and its facilities.
