“Yonupa” Summer school.

Annual summer school for graduate students majoring particle and nuclear physics is held in Nagano prefecture, in the middle of Japan. This time, after 10 years, I visited this school again, as a lecturer. It is nice to visit any places where I spent many days in my younger days. I have attended at the school every year when I was a graduate student. It was so joyful experience.

Before I got to the school venue, I was wondering if nature of young students may be very different from the one in my old days. But as soon as I started the lecture, this concern just went away. The summer school was really the same as before, nothing has changed, except for the names of the participants. It is very very good. This summer has nothing different from summers I experienced 10 years ago. Young graduates get to know each other and enjoy chatting, drinking, hiking and physics.

I in fact enjoyed giving lectures and a party after the lecture. I had opportunity to talk with fresh graduates. I hope this activity of the annual summer school will continue in the future. Since the organization of the summer school is completely by the graduate students themselves, I know it is kind of difficult to continue, but anyway this activity lasts at least for more than fourty years, and this fact encourages me to expect that this continues forever….
