Typical Day

Okazaki (pop.350,000) is a quiet, prosperous, ancient castle town. Some of the temples date from the 8th century and are still is use - there are no ruins. It is home to high-tech industry and traditional crafts. In addition to the Institute, there is a university, two colleges and the national research institutes for biotechnology and molecular science.

The town was the birthplace of Tokugawa Ieyasu who was the first and most powerful SHOGUN. He united the country after 30-40 years of civil war and destruction/decapitation before moving away to form a new capital called Edo - now known as Tokyo. Fortunately, he took his blood-soaked warriors with him and left Okazaki in peace. Even more fortunately, they spread the Mikawa region's dialect to Tokyo where it became the standard form of Japanese. Okazaki is now one of the few low cost locations where the local population speak the standard dialect.

Tokugawa Ieyasu's castle, ancestral temple and highway system etc., remain intact. The city is famous for its cherry blossom festival in spring, especially in the parks and along the tree-lined river where the castle is located. The festivals are ancient and immensely popular. The August fireworks festival is particularly famous and Okazaki makes some 80% of Japan's fireworks!!

The central location of Okazaki is a great advantage, close to all the major attractions such as Kyoto, Nara, Mount Fuji, Suzuka, Takayama, Nagano, the pearl islands at Toba etc., all of which are accessible in a day trip. The Institute is exactly halfway between Tokyo and Osaka, where many of our students head for the weekends.
