  • Couldn’t be better! I really enjoyed worldwide cuisine and drama of 30 foreign countries. The campus was beautiful and exotic. Students were so friendly and kind. I felt myself as if I were training.....  more »
  • Spent 2017 on exchange here. Lovely campus, and great Japanese language program!! Lack of English admin support, but that's supposedly a good thing, right?
  • The University is the oldest academic institution devoted to international studies in Japan. It began as Institute for Research of Foreign Documents (蛮書調所 Bansho Shirabesho), a Tokugawa shougunate's translation bureau set up in 1857. It was subsequently established as an independent educational and research institution with the name Tokyo School of Foreign Languages (東京外国語学校 Tōkyō gaikokugo gakkō) in 1899. In 1999, the University celebrated both the 126th anniversary of its original establishment and the 100th anniversary of its independence. The campus was moved to its present location, where students can study in a modern, hi-tech environment. There are 26 departments of language, i.e. the languages students can major at TUFS. Some languages are rarely taught in Japan or elsewhere the world.
