Recently, the name Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT) has come to be mentioned as a possible new school for Prince Hisahito of Akishino (16), the eldest son of the Akishino family,” said a journalist from the Imperial Household.
Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology is a national university with a large, lush campus in Fuchu and Koganei in the West Tokyo area, and has only two faculties, the Faculty of Agriculture and the Faculty of Engineering.
It has only two faculties, the Faculty of Agriculture and the Faculty of Engineering. However, although there are only two faculties, they each cover a fairly broad range of fields, and there is also a graduate school, so it is an advantage to be able to sit back and study in-depth in fields that interest you.
It is “Mr. Shiraishi of the Co-op” who has made the name of TUAT famous despite its modest impression. In 2005, Mr. Masanori Shiraishi, who worked at the University Co-op, wrote witty responses to requests to the Co-op by hand and posted them on the bulletin board in the store, which became a topic of conversation and even led to the publication of a book.
If Eugene were to be admitted to the school, it would surely be the most exciting event since that time.
A few examples of recent TUAT-related research topics include the spread of entomophagy in cooperation with other universities and private companies, and the demonstration that additives contained in microplastics, which are considered a problem because of their leakage into the ocean, accumulate in the bodies of fish through their food.
The University of Tokyo, Kyoto University, Hitotsubashi University, Waseda University, Waseda-Keio University, and Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology have all been mentioned as possible schools for Eugene to attend.
When I first heard the name Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, I thought he might have mistaken it for the private Tokyo University of Agriculture, which has been rumored, but he said that was not the case. The basis for the “Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology” theory is that her mother Noriko’s younger brother, Mr. Kawashima Fun is working as an associate professor at the Department of Design and Agricultural Science, Faculty of Agriculture, and that Prince Akishino has been a visiting professor at the Department of Biotherapy, Faculty of Agriculture since 2008, giving lectures there. Of course, this is a good basis for the relationship, but many people involved view it as ‘too subtle’ when asked if it is sufficient.
What about other highly prestigious universities such as Tokyo University, Kyoto University, Hitotsubashi University, and Waseda-Keio-Sophia?
What about the other high-stakes universities such as Tokyo University, Kyoto University, Hitotsubashi University, and Waseda-Keio Sophia? I have heard that during this summer vacation, Noriko has been giving them a lot of enthusiastic encouragement, and that she is making efforts to help them improve their academic abilities. Although she has not narrowed down her university of choice, she may be aiming for a place where she can study at the highest possible level, based on the field of study she wishes to pursue.
During a visit to Kagoshima in late July, which was Eugene’s first official regional assignment, he had the opportunity to be exposed to presentations in the fields of natural science and the arts.
He also observed the training of cattle. Many people responded that they felt a great deal of interest in the field of natural science, with Prince Eugene asking detailed questions and saying, “I am interested in dragonflies. From this point of view, Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology seems to be one of the leading candidates.
Although this aspect of Eugene’s life was already known to the public, it was probably significant that the public was exposed to him in a realistic way during his first official regional trip.
