On May 12, 2017, 50 students and four faculty members from the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia in the United States, which is famous for its high-quality MBA program, visited Kyoto Computer Gakuin (KCG) Kyoto Station School.The visit was part of the school's annual overseas training program.After receiving a welcome speech from Mr. Akira Hasegawa, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, the group immediately visited the KCG Computer Museum on the first floor of the Ekimae School.This museum was certified as the first "Distributed Computer Museum" by the Information Processing Society of Japan in 2009, and a number of computers certified as "Information Processing Technology Heritage" are exhibited and preserved here.The students listened to Chancellor Akira Hasegawa's explanation and looked with great interest at the famous computer machines of the era, which are now hard to see even in the United States.

Then, in the main hall, they listened to lectures in English by Professor Hideaki Kashiwabara of Kyoto Graduate Institute of Information (KCGI) and Mr. Wataru Hasegawa, Chairman of KCG Group.Prof. Kashiwabara introduced the "RINGI (Ringi) system", which is a unique Japanese bottom-up meeting style, and the importance of "After 6" (after work) communication in Izakaya (Japanese style pub), where honest feedback, which is difficult to get in meetings, is given.

After explaining the founding philosophy of KCG and the educational philosophy of the KCG Group, Mr. Wataru Hasegawa, President of KCG, introduced in detail the Japanese content industry such as manga and anime, which have attracted worldwide attention in recent years, and the art and content-related classes offered at KCGI and KCG.They were particularly impressed by the promotional video for the Vocaloid "Hatsune Miku" developed by Hiroyuki Ito, President of Crypton Future Media, Inc. and Professor of KCGI.After the lecture, students asked many questions about the process of RINGI system, KCGI and KCG's education contents, and Cool Japan policy, which showed their high interest in the lecture contents.Although the visit to KCG lasted only about four hours, the tour proceeded in a relaxed atmosphere and the participants seemed to have a deeper understanding of the KCG Group's cutting-edge IT education.
