Kyoto.

Last week I sepnt four days, or rather to say three nights, at Yukawa Institute, Kyoto university. This is the annual workshop on string theory and quantum field theory. Physicists from all over Japan gather here in every summer, and interact each other.

Since I spent almost ten years at this Kyoto university, North campus where Yukawa institute is located, to visit Kyoto reminds me of many many things. Although I am one of the organizers of the workshop, I actually enjoyed seeing my friends and having discussions with friends. On the last night of the workshop, there was a party to celebrate prof. Kugo’s 60th birthday. His students, including me, attended at the party and had a very nice evening together. It was such a happy moment to chat with Kugo-san and my friends there, and I felt as if I were a graduate student at that time. I was so happy to see Kugo-san’s happy face.

In such a way, everynight I attended at parties and drank till very late night (or rather to say, morning). Of course I woke up in the morning and went to the workshop venue at 9 am, since I am an organizer! It was tough days, but it was a lot of fun. I look forward to the next year to have such a time again.

Kyoto is one of the wonderful places in the world, for me. Everytime I went back there, I feel it. Physics is there, and friends are there.
