Azuma-cho Field Station is located in Nagashima Island, close to the Yatsushiro Sea, and serves as a seaside satellite facility for the researchers from our university and other institutions. The station was first established in 1972 and reconstructed in 2016. Facilities include large-scale water tanks (600t × 2, 30t × 3, 8t × 2, 4t × 4), several small research boats like Azuma (9t) and a dormitory for up to 30 persons.
