The College of Humanities and Sciences provides various avenues of support to facilitate international student life.

Life in Tokyo

Although there is no dormitory on the campus, an abundance of apartment houses and flats are available within commuting distance. The monthly rents range from 50,000-100,000 yen. The Office of Student Affairs is able to assist those who are in search of a suitable place.

There are several cafeterias on campus, which provide a variety of foods at reasonable prices. Japanese, other Asian and Western foods are available daily. The College is located near the central part of Tokyo, and very near Shinjuku, one of the liveliest downtown areas of Tokyo. There are a number of excellent theaters, museums, art galleries and other facilities in proximity to the campus. These attractions will greatly enrich student life.

Studying in Tokyo is not a disheartening experience for nature-lovers. Just a one-hour train ride from Tokyo will take you to beautiful mountain areas surrounding the capital city of Tokyo. These natural areas are a heaven for bird-watchers, hikers, history buffs and sightseers.

Mt. Fuji, one of the most beautiful mountains in the world, is not far away. Students may enjoy its picturesque view from several buildings on the campus. Many travel agencies have day tours from Tokyo to Mt. Fuji as well as other spots around Tokyo.
