Nagoya and Nagoya University
The Chubu region, located in the heart of Japan, has played a central
role in this nation's history and has for long prospered under a
flourishing culture and economy. The area is particularly renowned as
the home of Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu, the
three great generals who unified Japan four hundred years ago in the
Age of Civil Wars. Nagoya Castle, built by Tokugawa Ieyasu and famous
for the golden dolphins found on its donjon, serves as the landmark of
the region. Its castle town, Nagoya, has thrived.
In contemporary Japan, this vibrant metropolis (ranked fourth in
population after Tokyo, Osaka and Yokohama) occupies an important
political and economical position. Nagoya constitutes the nerve center
of the Chubu Industrial Zone, an amalgamation of both traditional and
modern industries, notable amongst which is the automobile industry.
Although Nagoya University's history can be dated back to 1871, when a
medical school and hospital were founded on the site of a local feudal
government house, it was in 1939 that the university was formally
established as Japan's seventh imperial university. Since 1949, after
its re-emergence in the reformed post-war education system, Nagoya
University has not only developed as the pre-eminent educational
establishment in the Chubu region, it has also flourished as one of the
foremost national universities representing Japan.
Currently, Nagoya University consists of nine schools offering both
undergraduate and graduate programs, two graduate schools, three
research institutes and ten research centers. The total number of
students comprises approximately 15,000; the teaching staff numbers
