Kumamoto University, located in the city of Kumamoto in Japan, is composed of three main campuses.
The history of the Kumamoto University Hospital goes back to the opening of the Hosokawa Clan Hospital in 1870. After being reorganized and moved several times, the hospital was moved to the place where it is currently located in 1901. In order to meet the needs of the segmentation and advancement of medical services, the hospital established central consultation facilities as well as new medical departments with the aim of doing such things as increasing efficiency. Currently, the Kumamoto University Hospital has developed into a general hospital with high-tech medical equipment and a comprehensive medical system. Kumamoto University, which is located in the city of Kumamoto in Japan, is composed of three main campuses, which are the Kurokami Campus, the Honjo and Kuhonji Campuses, and the Oe Campus. Walking around the Kurokami North Campus, one encounters several nostalgic structures made with red brick, such as the Fifth High School Memorial Hall, the Science Experiment Site, and "Akamon" (the "Red Gate"). These elegant structures are important national cultural assets that date back to the beginning of Kumamoto University. On the Kurokami South Campus there are several new buildings, the 12-floor Center for Kurokami Advanced Research Alliance, high-rise buildings complete with experimental test facilities and research rooms, and the Faculty of Engineering's 100th Anniversary Memorial Hall.
