A Greater Understanding of the Kitasato Philosophy
To honor the life and achievements of Shibasaburo Kitasato, and to make his philosophy more widely known, starting in 1964, some of his personal articles were exhibited in the research wing of the Institute. These exhibits were moved to the Kitasato main building in 1997 and opened to the public. The number of visitors has now risen to over 60,000. The analysis and examination of the 6,500 items is ongoing, and as new historical facts come to light, they are announced in Donner, our public relations magazine.
