  • The Silver Apricot tree in the school area is the most beautiful scenery at the end of November to the beginning of December. There are large silver apricot trees, there are silver Apricot Boulevard. With a history of school buildings, you can stay half don't want to leave.

  • The two sides of the big gate of East China Silver Apricot is very beautiful, when the silver apricot fell like in the underground lay a layer of yellow carpet, and two adjacent to the silver apricot each other brilliant, very beautiful. Walking in the park looking at the Silver apricot, or on the ground floor, there is a sense of leisure. Tokyo University is located in the local three-cho station, it is not long before the exit of the four exits to the east side of the university, but there is no obvious indication after the exit, but it is convenient to follow the direction of the students.

  • The campus of the University of Tokyo can go in and out freely. A sprawling campus is great walking paths. Stunning fall foliage season. Sanshiro pond is where the real Tokyo makes me think is subtle and profound.

  • 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.
