  • 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.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
