Message from International Students

Gerelmaa Danaa Master's student in the second year (Mongolia)

I had always dreamed of a chance to study in Shinshu, rich in nature. Having enrolled at the Faculty of Agriculture, I was struck by the size of the campus with rich fields and orchards stretching away into the distance and facilities for livestock and dairy farming. I'm studying Agricultural Economics, and not a day goes to waste. Shinshu has become my second home.

I've been given a very warm welcome since arriving in Shinshu last April. The Faculty of Agriculture has a good range of facilities and a stunning location with panoramic views of the Southern and Central Alps. The teaching staff and official at the university are friendly and open, while the locals are generous and proud of their heritage. In short, this is an ideal place to study as an International Student.

"I want to have fun at university!"
"I want to pick up some practical knowledge!"
"I want a great teaching staff!"
If you said "YES" to these 3 things, then may be the Faculty of Agriculture is the place for you! This is the place to see a side of Japan you won't find in the big cities.
Give it a go!(*^_^*)

We, the foreign students are very much devoted to our studies. In addition to our studies, We exchange culture with each other.

Joni Kjansuu Doctoral student (Finland)

Hi everybody!My name is Joni And I come from Finland, I studied in Shinshu University's Faculty of Agriculture. To be surrounded by the Japanese Alps and, especially during the spring, to see all these snow-topped moutain around me just gets me into a good mood. I love "Onsen" and in Ina there are a couple of really enjoyable one and I always wait to get a chance to relax and chitchat with local Japanese. The Sauna is a excellent place to practice words just learned in a Japanese class and even to learn some new local ones. You certainly should try it. If I feel like a metropolitan atmosphere I usually go to Tokyo or Nagoya, a weekend trip is always enough for me. Taking a bus is very convenient and not too expensive compared to the price level in Japan. I know that my time at Shinshu University will fly like a jet and in no time I will be on a plane back to Finland.
