Three Chinese graduates of KUFS, of whom are He Mei Xi (Japanese name Miki Hiraiwa, Faculty of Foreign Studies’ Department of Japanese Studies graduate, Class of 2012), Zhou Tian Hua, an antique researcher, and Cai Nuo Jie, a business hotel owner in Nagoya, donated a total of 54 antique objects from China, such as bronzeware and ceramicware. In response to this gracious act of kindness, Dr. Yoshikazu Morita, Chancellor and Chair of the Board of the Governors, presented them with a letter of appreciation and commemorative gifts.
“We would like to make use of these objects for educational purposes by making them widely accessible to our students as well as the general public,” said Dr. Morita, extending his gratitude. The objects include historically valuable items such as the inkstone from the Ming dynasty and the inkstick from the end of the Qing dynasty. They will be stored and displayed in the University Museum of Cultures.
