Theme: see the unseen

京都府, Kyôto

At our university, there are so many aspects that we do not see in our daily lives. Because most Japanese college students decide their major as they enroll the college, they do not have to know much about things outside of their majors. Therefore, when they are not related to your studies directly, students or researchers do not see many interest aspects of our university, even if their research institute buildings are seen on a daily basis.
