Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere

What is Humanosphere?

Vol. 1, 2015.

This pamphlet is the first to collect our manga pieces that were issued on “Seizonken Dayori (Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere Newsletter)”, an informative magazine that we publish. This collaboration between Kyoto University’s Research Institute for Sustainable Humanosphere (RISH) and Kyoto Seika University’s Manga Department allows our research activities to be introduced in ways that are easily understood.

We hope that you read with ease, and that you understand a great deal more about the “Humanosphere Science.” Ready? Let’s explore this Humanosphere together!
