I was visiting the university on business but I enjoyed looking around the campus too. There are some great gardens in the centre and interesting architecture. The shop sells interesting products produced by academics past and present.

Tokyo University is the symbolic place for not only Japan but for many scholars in the world. This university has such beautiful campus and it is obvious why the university is the top one in Japan. Visit Tokyo and Tokyo university.

I visited the place on Sunday afternoon during autumn time. What a lovely place. Its Sanshiro pond is just amazing. The university complex itself has lot of offer. Many people come to enjoy a walk, some do painting, cycling, kids running around. Definitely a great place to be.

We went to see the new statue of Hachiko with Professor Ueno. It was located a few metres from the main gate of the Faculty of Agriculture. It was a heart-warming statue. The restored Hinoki cypress doors of the main gate were also impressive.

This beautiful little statue, set in a quiet corner of the university grounds, Is a much happier looking Hachiko as he jumps up to meet his master. There is a famous statue of Hachiko at Shibuya station, showing the dog waiting patiently for... More

I suppose it was winter break because the school campus was quiet. The University bookstore was open and I bought a tin of cookie with the school logo on it.

The campus feels serenely quiet, and the weather was perfect for one to indulge in a bike tour around the campus. I tried to locate the Hachiko Reunited Statue but didn't have enough time. Hoping to visit the faculty again one day, and perhaps, become a student of UTokyo <3

For Hachiko fans, you will find another statue in the university campus. The statues is much better than that in Shibuya because with this one, Hachi is playing with his human who was a sensei at UTokyo.
