    I only went for the ginko trees for the autumn colors. It was very beautiful. About 10 minute walk from Sapporo station

    University of Tokyo is a big university, it has a very big land with big trees everywhere. So calm, quite, and also relaxing. And it where I found the reunited statue of hachiko and Prof Ueno.

    Doshisha's main campus is just north of the Imperial Palace Park, along Imadegawa Street. The campus features a number of red brick buildings that would feel right at home at a college in New England. (The university was founded in the late 19th century by an Amherst College graduate from Japan.) The older buildings are wonderful examples of Meiji period architecture, but the university has done a nice job blending newer buildings to compliment the older ones. The chapel is a particularly noteworthy example. We were lucky enough to stop by when someone was playing the organ. From a tourist standpoint, it is a nice place to walk through if you are in the neighborhood. The Imperial Palace is just south of campus and Shokokuji Temple is just northeast of campus. As a college neighborhood, there are a number of places to grab a quick meal.

    Being a massive fan of the above-mentioned writer I wanted to visit the campus grounds. There's a university merchandise store by the main building along with a cafe, the garden grounds were closed on the day but I could tell it makes for a stunning campus. The university's 'mission' as written up on a board opposite the main building is an impressive insight into the Japanese culture and education at large.

    This is a free museum open from 10 to 5:30 every day with few holiday closures.
    The permenant collection features Shinto artifacts and Tenjin figurines among other things and has explanations in English. There are lockers available and a helpful staff that speaks some English. The student cafeteria has affordable light meals and snacks as well as hot and cold drinks.
    Featured now until Feb. 2017 is a wonderful exhibit of Jomon Flame style pots found in the Shinano River Basin. Some are currently on loan to the British museum and certainly have not been seen in Western museums throughout Europe and the U.S.
    So this is a chance to broaden your cultural knowledge. There are "museum talks"
    Offered on the Jomon period but check with the museum to find out exact dates and times and either be fluent in Japanese or bring a friend who is able to translate.

    My daughter wants to attend this university, so we paid a visit the last time were were in Tokyo. We were impressed by the large, yet compact urban campus. The administrative staff were very helpful in giving us ideas of buildings to visit such as the student cafeteria and library. It is nearly across the street from the JR Yotsuya station. The students were mainly Japanese, with a few westerners. Most classes are taught in English. I hope my daughter is accepted here!

    I went to the Garden Party the other day, and the garden of the Palace of the Duke of Shimazu was bright with azaleas. Viewing the colourful azaleas, I enjoyed green tea and sweets. There is a Garden Party on the season of azaleas, so I recommend visiting here to see the beautiful blossoms!
