University of Tokyo Reviews
a reputable campus that has good historical buildings. Has a modern canteen under the gtreen plaza in front of this building, has a halal food counter. more »
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 »
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.
