Five years of Knowledge, Innovation and Creativity, Happy Birthday to Knowledge Capital!

It is always a pleasure to visit Knowledge Capital (ナレッジキャピタル) in Osaka.  Every time, there is something new going on.  No exception this time – it is the 5th anniversary celebration, cum the launching of global education alliance.

The electronic arts performance, the exhibition and the seminars were all amazing.  I particularly like the idea of rebuilding the historical study classrooms, some even with themed decoration such as green, for holding talks and seminars.

For those who are interested in visiting Knowledge Capital, it is situated in Grand Front Osaka, about 5-minute walk from Osaka Station.  InterContinental Osaka is my all time favourite as it is actually part of the complex making it super convenient.  But I did not stay there this time due to the need to commute to the north of Osaka.  I stayed at Courtyard by Marriott Shinosaka Station, which turned out to be very nice for its close proximity to Shin-Osaka station, bigger rooms and a variety of restaurants nearby.

In fact, it was very nice meeting old friends and making new ones from Japan, Poland, Thailand and France. Once again, happy birthday!  Kanpai (Cheers)!


融合智慧、科技和創意 — 恭賀Knowledge Capital成立五周年!

每次去大阪的Knowledge Capital(ナレッジキャピタル)都留下難忘的回憶,因為總有別開新面的主題活動,而今次則是Knowledge Capital的五周年慶祝典禮,同時亦是全球教育聯盟(Global education alliance)的簽署儀式,很是熱鬧。

典禮節目豐富,電子藝術表演十分精彩,展覽和研討會引人入勝。我特別支持翻新舊教室的建議,亦可為一些課室增添主題設置,例如以綠色為主題,用作舉辦講座和研討會。

Knowledge Capital位於Grand Front Osaka商廈內,在大阪站下車後走約五分鐘就到,十分方便。同樣位於Grand Front Osaka內的大阪洲際飯店是我最喜歡的酒店,加上又鄰近Knowledge Capital,這次本應入住,但此行我需要到大阪北部,所以就選了靠近新大阪站的新大阪拉弗雷飯店,除了交通便利外,酒店環境舒適,房間寛敞,附近還有林林總總的食肆,是個不錯的選擇。

這次能夠和老朋友再聚,又認識了來自日本、波蘭、泰國和法國的新朋友,實在是滿載而歸。在此再一次祝賀Knowledge Capital五周年誌慶!乾杯!
