Kanazawa University, originating form a smallpox vaccination center of the Kaga Clan, as far back as 1862, was founded in 1949 as one of the new national universities by uniting institutions such as Ishikawa Teacher Training School, Kanazawa Medical College and the Fourth Higher School. Thenceforth for half a decade, Kanazawa University in its position as the nucleus of higher education of parts of Japan facing the Sea of Japan, has constantly contributed to the higher education of the country and to the academic world through efforts to deepen, broaden and integrate scholarship, and also by qualitative and quantitative maintenance of undergraduate and graduate organizations. Kodatsuno accommodate approximately 11,000 students including 350 international students. I have no doubt that the interaction between the students, conversations with the lectures and contacts with the local people in the community, should provide the students with an ideal setting for the cultivation of individual personalities.
