If you are a TODAI student or not, this Uni and
surrounding area, HONGO feel like you are back
in time.

Its cafeteria is quite cheap and has got variety of
dishes from set Lunch to Ramen noodles.

Fairly nice to walk inside, very quiet and surrounded by
nature even it's close to UENO.

If you walk over HONGO, you will get to YANAKA, SENDAGI, NEZU
old town area. These area is the must to visit. lots of cafes,
shops and temples! spend a whole day to discover the other side
of Tokyo : )

Does the average tourist have a reason to go to Tokyo University? I guess not. But Todai is perhaps the most famous university in the country. Maybe I've watched the anime "Love Hina" one to many times, but I thought it would be neat to take a stroll though campus. It was a long walk from Ueno station but I finally made it. Honestly, it was a bit disappointing. Having been on the campuses of such American schools as Duke University, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the University of Alabama, the campus was not extremely impressive. Of course Tokyo doesn't have the space available the aforementioned schools do, but there was not much to set the architecture apart from the rest of the concrete mid-rises of Tokyo, except for the Yasuda Auditorium you see in every photo of the University.
