  • University of Tokyo is a big university, it has a very big land with big trees everywhere. So calm, quite, and also relaxing. And it where I found the reunited statue of hachiko and Prof Ueno.  more »
  • I went to The University of Tokyo to meet my friend. When I wait for him, I came across wonderful nature. Sitting on the bench and looking at the scenery is great!  more »

  • The bestest school in Japan, ranked 20-something worldwide. Probably one of the best in the world if you exclude places like the Ivy League and Oxbridge. Unlike Kyoto University, Tokyo-U is built on a slope and has a lot of ‘forest’ in its boundaries. Perhaps because of that, you can see more tourists and citizens just chilling in the campus.
  • For tourist: beautiful campus with lots of Ginkgo and Maple trees, amazing to visit in the fall.
