A photography exhibition titled “A Hundred Scenes of Hokkaido University” will be held at the main Hokkaido University Co-op building just south of Central Lawn from November 5th to the 30th.
The exhibition showcases photographs submitted to the Co-op’s annual photo contest. The theme this year is “A Rainbow of Aspirations.”
The award-winning photos as well as other entries will be on display on the 1st and 2nd floors. We hope you all enjoy the many beautiful sights of Hokkaido University as captured by our students, faculty, and staff.
