  • I never been to Tokyo university even working near there, finally I entered the labyrinth. 職場が近いのに、一度も足を踏み入れたことのなかった東京大学。ついに先日潜入に成功しました(笑) 思ったよりも広くて迷いつつ、弥生門から正門に抜け道。 かなり古い建物が多いのかと思いきや、スタバとかもあってびっくり。 今...  more »
  • If you were touched by the story of the original Hachiko statue, the new one in Tokyo University is a wonderful ending to the story. Having lost one of my own dogs recently, it was comforting to see H...  more »
  • Good if you are in the area. The university has a unique architectural style and must be interesting for people who are into that. I personally liked the pond that offers a nice stroll around it. Woul...  more »

  • 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.
