Calligraphy

As a result of a profound interest in the arts and the sciences, Professor Satoshi Ōmura creates, by hand, his own customised piece of calligraphy every year. Each piece expresses his own current vision and understanding of the philosophy, feeling, and association between the arts and sciences, the resultant impact in our daily lives or their indication for future pathways and ventures.
