Research Information of Gunma University "SUIGEN"
– We want to be the source of knowledge –
The source of the Tone River is Mt. Oominakami,
one of the Mikuni Mountains in northern Gunma Prefecture. The Tone
River flows from this mountainous area to the Kanto Plain through
almost the prefecture's centre, with Japan's most significant
catchment area supporting daily life and industry. The forests
upstream are home to various small creatures, and the water
produced by the rich forests nurtures marine life.
Gunma University wants to be the source of knowledge. Therefore,
like a SUIGEN, the birth of a river supplying water circulating
forests, rivers, and the sea, we will conduct research, education,
regional cooperation, industrial collaboration, and social
contribution leading to innovations.
