The Ito Campus, which opened in October last year, offers space where not only students and university staff but also local residents can appreciate nature. The campus strives to be environmentally friendly and to consider the surrounding ecosystem.|
With the assistance of the "Cooperation Committee for Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of Japan – Nepal Diplomatic Relations," Himalayan cherry trees were planted at the Ito Campus so that people can enjoy viewing Japanese cherry blossoms in spring and Himalayan cherry blossoms in autumn.
On Tuesday, September 26, 2006, 10 Himalayan cherry tree seedlings, as tall as one meter, were planted in a ceremony. More than 50 people attended the ceremony, including Yuki Ito, chief representative of the "Japan-Nepal Cooperation Committee for the 50th Anniversary of the Establishment of Bilateral Diplomatic Relations," Shigeko Mieno, president of the "Association of Education Fund for Children in Asia and Women," and Senri Kajiyama, president of Kyushu University.
