    Spacious cyclists ride campus to students in person seems to be, anyway. Building is old and history from there until the new one. Relaxing space such as a garden. It is interesting to visit the University of Japan.

    Went to see the University of Tokyo a while ago, drew a sketch. I like the buildings, made of red bricks! With a touch of antiquity and moss. Some of them remain in Yokohama too. There are some of them in my hometown of Nizhniy Novgorod, and I was always attracted to see these buildings. 赤レンガが大好きです。だから、東京大学へ見に行きました。 ステキな建物ですね。

    I still remember the reaction of the immigration officer when I said I am going to study at "Todai" (Tokyo university in Japanese). He said "Honthooo?!" with his eyes in wide open. Since then Todai became a precious jewel for me. I was fortunate to pursue my masters in Civil Engineering, with an expose to cutting edge technology, education and people. Everyone at "Todai" thank you very much!

    The best university in Japan. Don't forget to check out the historical architectures, Japanese garden, and Hachiko statue.

    Todai (tokyo daigaku) is one of the best and most prestigious university in Japan. It is also good for tourists to see. They're is an amazingly beautiful Lake inside the campus.

    University of Tokyo, Known as "Todai" in Japanese, is the first National University and probably the best university in Japan. There are some historical buildings and lots of green in the huge property. Visitors can enjoy walking.
