One year of Nakao Lab

Meeting to observe the Comprehensive Fire Drill

The Fuji Fire Drill is an annual public exercise held by the Ground Self-Defense Force’s Fuji Command in August. This tour was launched by Professor Hatamura with the idea of “providing an opportunity to experience the greatness of tanks and armored vehicles”, and has been held every year since 1993.

Heda Camp

Every year in August, the Nakao Lab holds a four-day, three-night camp at the University of Tokyo’s Toda Dormitory. Because the camp is held on a Saturday and Sunday, it is a lively camp where not only students but also alumni, professors, and their families gather, and we deepen our friendship in an environment surrounded by nature. In addition, an exchange party with local junior high school students is held every year.

Ski Camp

A ski camp is held around the end of February. In 2019, due to the lack of snow and other factors, we were not able to hold a ski camp, but a wagtail fishing event was held by volunteers.

Conference Presentations

Nakao Laboratory supports students’ participation in international conferences. In FY2019, Mr. Ito (M2), Mr. Tagata (M2), Mr. Oyama (M1), Mr. Okamura (M1), and Mr. Tendo (M1) gave presentations at ASPE (USA), Mr. Koizumi (M2) at GBCIC (Austria), Mr. Takada (M1) at ITSC (New Zealand), and Mr. Tomizawa (D1) at IMPRES (Kanazawa).

Heisei Seminar and OB Presentation

Nakao Lab. holds the Heisei Seminar in June and the OB Meeting in March every year. Last year’s meeting was held online because of the Corona disaster. In the Heisei Seminar, we listen to lectures by Nakao Lab alumni who are active in the industrial world. In the alumni meeting, students present the results of their research to the alumni.


We have a party to welcome new B4 & M1 students, to celebrate the end of graduate school examinations, to celebrate the end of the year, and so on. The party is filled with a lively and homey atmosphere, with students taking the lead in preparing food, and at the year-end party, B3 gives a small-group seminar presentation and demonstration on the spot.
