  • 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.

  • I really HOPE this lives up to my expectations and it is my dream school even if I live in the other side of the world I HOPE that I can get into this amazing school one day.
  • This place just gives me a lot of HOPE! I loved the butter and fried chicken, we played a lot of Tetris and piano lessons! We also made some healthy soup! There were some weird robot stuffed animals but that was cool, i had many fun classmates, though some died and there were traitors and masterminds, but either way it was super fun there! 10-10, would go again.
