"This is not Japan, its altogether a different country", this is what most of the visitors to the University of Tsukuba comment. Our Tsukuba campus is well known for its beautiful campus, from where Mt. Tsukuba can be seen. The 258-hectare university grounds are covered with forest parks and various innovationaly designed buildings. The buildings are efficiently laid out and systematically connected by pedestrian and bicycle ways and curving roads.
The Tsukuba campus is located in the Tsukuba Science City, sixty kilometers northeast of Tokyo. The Science City is a well-planned city where pedestrian and bicycle ways connect our university, station and Japan's leading national institutes accumulated in Tsukuba.
In addition, the University of Tsukuba has a campus in Tokyo. Our Tokyo campus offers graduate- level evening courses for working adults.
