沖縄科学技術大学院大学(OIST)  Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST

I have learned from the NHK news that this graduate school is ranked among the top ten research institutions in the world for their outstanding research results, and that the reason for the outstanding research results is the freedom of research and research funding support.
This is very encouraging news at a time when there are concerns about the future of Japan's scientific and technological capabilities due to the government's poor and backward-looking support and promotion policies for science and technology over the past few decades.
The Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) is hosting this year's Nobel Prize winner in Physiology and Medicine, Dr. Svante Pääbo of Germany, as a visiting professor.
It has also already been reported that Dr. Svante Pääbo has been visiting the Zen temple in Miyoshi (Saiko-Zenji) every year for the past 20-odd years and has even written books about his research.
Okinawa is a place we have traveled to twice in the past and would like to visit again and again.
