Dr. Kazuo Inamori privately donated two billion yen to Kyoto Prefecture. The donation ceremony was held at Kyoto Prefecture offices on November 13. The donation will be used to construct a general education facility to be shared among three universities: Kyoto Prefectural University, Kyoto Prefectural Medical University and Kyoto Institute of Technology.
At the press conference Inamori stated, "It has been 60 years since I moved from my hometown of Kagoshima. I have always wanted to repay the people of Kyoto who were so helpful to me." Once completed, the building will be named "Inamori Memorial Hall."
