Graduate School of Advanced Science and Technology

JAIST is in the center of the Ishikawa Science Park located on a hill in the city of Nomi in Ishikawa Prefecture. The campus site enjoys scenic beauty, overlooking nearby counties and the city of Kanazawa to the north, the Sea of Japan to the west, forests and pastures to the south, and the spectacular Mt. Hakusan to the east.The area provides us with a variety of recreational facilities for every season, including several nearby ski resorts, beaches and seaside parks, golf courses, hot springs and athletic and recreational parks. With a population density far below that of the Pacific side of the island of Honshu, the area affords easy access to wilderness and outdoor recreation.Within 20km of JAIST is the historic city of Kanazawa, often referred to as the hidden gem of Japan, which hosts numerous cultural events all year round.
