■ Message
Message to undergraduate students: Gaining fluency in multiple languages and possessing specialized knowledge are essential for living a meaningful life in a globalized society. While most Japanese universities fail to produce such graduates, I hope that students who come to APU will take advantage of the best educational opportunities currently available in Japan that APU offers, and grow towards the next step of their life. Message to graduate school students: The uniquely diverse cultural environment at APU offers the best learning opportunities for both academic and practical excellence. Be prepared to challenge yourself to the maximum extent and find the right mentor who can facilitate this process.
