Atsugi City

Today I am going to be blogging about the city Atsugi and Kanagawa Institute of Technology

Atsugi city is a medium sized semi-rural city in Kanagawa ken, Kanto region Japan.  It is a city surrounded by mountains and you will be seeing chains of mountain pretty much wherever you go.  The city center is called Hon-Atsugi Station and there one can take the train to Tokyo, Yokohama, Kamakura..etc.  It is also in the train station where one can buy cards which one can use to pay transportation fees.

I live in the Sanda region of Atsugi, which is about 25 minutes north of Hon-Atsugi by bus (takes a bit more than an hour to walk there from my place).  Roughly 1.9 kilometer North of my place is the Kanagawa Institute of Technology (KAIT).  This school was founded in 1963 first as a vocational school and in 1975 became a university.  I am currently working in Shirai-lab, which is located on the fifth floor of K1, the tallest building on campus.

Below are a series of photos around my place and KAIT.  The tallest white building is K1.
