A historical site with many western buildings, Japanese gates. Unfortunately, the iconic main building was under renovation, so I couldn't have my picture taken there. A relaxing walk for an afternoon. Venture into the basements of buildings for the canteens and bookshops.

I did not plan to visit this place but I went here to work for 1 day. It is a nice and quiet campus.

We stumbled upon this place by accident - still it turned our to be one of our Tokyo highlights! At one end of the area there is an all wild garden with a small pond. A lot of fish, birds and turtles - a quite surreal place given its location and a perfect escape from the busy surroundings.

I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the campus is. It has the right vibe, and conference facilities were top notch as well.

Although it may seem intimidating, some of the buildings in the Hongo campus are impressive, a stroll on a weekend or holiday may find you encounter families with young children riding unicycles on the alleys. The Health and Medicine Museum is also worth visiting. Many statues dot the corners, inspiring.

Of course, being the MOST pretigious University in Tokyo, it was amazing. I've always wondered what it would be like to attend there..

The old buildings, the clock tower, some redbrick buildings and the pseudo-Gothic libraries are all of interest. There are some popular restaurants, one of which is on top of the University Hospital, on 15th floor, with an excellent view! The garden and the large pond are also worth a visit.

The university is located near to hotels and one can just walk there. The campus is quiet and the architecture has its own identity and uniqueness.

I had a delightful time at the University of Tokyo talking about work engagement (www.workengagement.com) and planning research collaborations. Looking forward to more contact.
