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.

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.

So, finally after 90 years, master and dog are together again. It is located at the left side of the main entrance to... More

University of Tokyo is a great place for a walk: the architectural style of the campus is quite unique, many of its buildings have been declared national treasure of Japan. You can find here kids playing, people reading books or even having a picnic under an old tree. And, of course, students praying for good grades.

I wanted to see it because I'm a fan of a manga in which the University plays a big part. I really liked it and the buildings and landscaping is very nice, but it's not really worth going out of your way to visit.
