What is OIST? What do we do here?
OIST campus is open to the public, so please visit us!
This event is open to the public and provides an opportunity to learn about OIST's education and research activities while experiencing the latest science and technology first-hand. The event includes a Science Café program during which visitors can talk with researchers and learn about the mysteries of animals and plants. We also offer unique hands-on crafts and experiment demonstrations that will spark your curiosity and introduce you to the wonder of science.
Science talks featuring OIST researchers and students are held periodically at the Junkudo Bookstore in Naha. Attendees can ask questions directly to the researchers.
Enjoy traditional Ryukyu performing arts such as Okinawan folk songs, Ryukyu dance, and Kumiodori, a kind of traditional Okinawan opera.
Art exhibitions featuring students of the Okinawa Prefectural University of Arts and many other international and domestic artists are held periodically throughout the year.
We invite performers from inside and outside the prefecture to hold concerts on a regular basis. We have offered jazz, classical, modern, traditional Japanese, and more.
