  • This is called Seoul National University in Japan. It's a small campus, but it's well decorated. There's a huge university hospital next to it, and there's a lot of talent, so go get it.

  • I'm not a student, but I heard from a friend that it was interesting to walk around the University of Tokyo. The University of Tokyo Communication Center thought that he was dealing with interesting products while walking around. It seems to be selling products developed by the University of Tokyo, and rare things such as "physical amino acid candy jelly" and "antiviral antibacterial ballpoint pen" were sold that are not found elsewhere. I bought it involuntarily. In addition, original goods using lotus such as "Renka hand cream" in collaboration with Shiseido are also developed, and I was worried about a good smell, but I ended up coming back without buying it. I regret that I didn't buy it now. Next time I visit the University of Tokyo, I want to buy hand cream and go home.

  • The bestest school in Japan, ranked 20-something worldwide. Probably one of the best in the world if you exclude places like the Ivy League and Oxbridge. Unlike Kyoto University, Tokyo-U is built on a slope and has a lot of ‘forest’ in its boundaries. Perhaps because of that, you can see more tourists and citizens just chilling in the campus.
  • For tourist: beautiful campus with lots of Ginkgo and Maple trees, amazing to visit in the fall.
