A little over three years ago, the Kitakami mountains of Iwate Prefecture and Miyagi Prefecture were selected as the Japanese candidate site for the International Linear Collider, and ever since, the local area has been hard at work to prepare itself for the project. We started THE KITAKAMI TIMES to share local ILC initiatives along with the wonderful culture of northern Japan with researchers abroad, and thanks to your support we’ve now marked one year of publication. To celebrate, we’ve put together an anniversary issue in PDF form!
In this issue…
–Talking about 2016’s LCWS with Prof. Shinya Narita of Iwate University
–ILC summer camp at an Ichinoseki hot spring resort
–Kesennuma: Unusual treats, sake, biking, and sea frolicking
–A wonderful summer full of “natsu-matsuri”
One year of physics, festivals, and fun. Here’s hoping for many more years THE KITAKAMI TIMES!
