To commemorate the foundation of Osaka University (established on May 1, 1931), the "Icho Festival" usually takes place around May 1 and 2 of each year. The University Festival takes place on November 1 through 5. (November 3 is Culture Day, a national holiday.) At these two festivals there will be various cultural and sport events planned and operated by different student organizations. There will also be an open house of various facilities of the University during the Icho Festival. We encourage international students to actively take part in these activities.

"Icho" is the Japanese word for "ginkgo tree". These trees can be found in abundance throughout the University campuses. The University logo symbolizes a ginkgo leaf (see the left).
