I went to see the building of Shinshu University’s “Faculty of Textiles”.
Faculty of Textile Science and Technology, Shinshu University in Ueda City
When you think of Shinshu University, you may think that it is located in Matsumoto City, Nagano Prefecture, but for some reason the “Faculty of Textile Science and Technology” is located in Ueda City.I heard that the building was designated as an important cultural property of modern architecture, so I went to see it. Speaking of Shinshu’s textile department, it is “Kaiko”. Sericulture. There was a time when silk, which can be harvested from silk, flourished as an industry in Japan. In an era like China today, where only the wealthy are forced to work at low wages and enjoy a tremendously good life, when I think about it now, it’s a terrible story, but this is also a case of respect for basic human rights and the morality of equality. In this short period of time, the human spirit has evolved so much that it feels like we are just about to start. When I say Kaiko, I think of those times.
Land famous for sericulture
Shinshu University is doing research on the seeds of that “kaiko”, and I guess it’s because it’s a local area that the research and history are being preserved. These days, after all, chemical fibers have evolved, and when it comes to “weaving,” he has a so-called analog image. Make it, take a mold, sew it, make clothes, put them on the market, and people will buy them and wear them. It’s an amazing process, but I think there are many other uses for research and development in other fields other than clothing. It’s being re-examined for being thin and “hard to twist”, so I don’t know if PE is made of silk or not, but since it’s a fiber, I think it would be amazing if it was made from silk. In the same way, the cutting edge is somehow simple, so things made from “kaiko” thread may be reconsidered and become a big deal…
toured the premises
This “Ueda City” is also quite an urban area, and I think it was about an hour from Matsumoto, but it was just after passing through the mountains on the other side of the Northern Alps, but the roads are well maintained and it’s easy to come and go. and···. Shinshu University is also in Matsumoto, so is Matsumoto your base? Also, there is a school building for the textile department in Ueda City. It feels like it’s on a hill in the city, so when I told the security guard at the school gate that I wanted to visit, he immediately gave me the OK and let me park my car in the parking lot. kind! “It’s national.” In private schools, there are many places where people other than those involved are not allowed, so we toured the premises. You can also take photos freely. The weather is nice and I feel refreshed. I always think of a university, but it feels like the grounds are wide and surrounded by nature. For the time being, the image is that it is in the forest. A school in an urban area is a little different, but an old university in the suburbs has a very large site area, and is it in the woods? park? “I feel that way a lot.” Do students really need nature in their learning environment? image of this campus. In the future, it would be nice to be in a tower building, but other than that, the university is in a good location, so he doesn’t really hear about earthquakes or heavy rains that have caused major disasters. Is it considered? This Shinshu University Textile Faculty is also in a good location.
