  • Japan top University is a saver. Ueno is also put on freedom on campus in general people (about 15 minutes from Yasuda auditorium) is about 5 minutes ' walk from the pond, subway and Starbucks in the school, so you can also tea. Yasuda Auditorium other than building and sanshiro pond will feel the history. Now you can narikirimashou to the University of Tokyo!

  • If you are in the area it is definitely worth visiting. Buildings with gothic shaped windows, traditional shapes buildings and an in the middle of it all ... a heart shaped lake :) 
  • Changing temperament and quite some time ago and have seen students who withdraw from the Red Gate in terms like folding,... good. But I know people out here graduates in society a lot here works only on non-official ones are useless knowledge rich human like's it is. Because people do not know the setbacks and defeats the role straight in without advance preparation in a banquet speech when asked if you have a whole lot of knowledge is lacking in the common sense of the lifestyle... so people don't know only. So maybe the students here in the circle of my contacts happened say so people, ginger and. As this step once in a kind atmosphere felt old, I had become just a University. What students watching hobby and often... in the garden book is the one who is not.... Era so that it is I, and.

  • Campus with beautiful scenery composed by its symbolic gingko trees and grand-ish architecture. In Autumn all the trees turn yellow and the roads will transform into yellow carpets. Apart from the scenery and architecture, there is a lot of history in this school worth finding out about too.
  • Coeg sekali anda!!!
