TUJ is truly an international university. Within the undergraduate program, approximately 50 percent of the students are Japanese, and the remainder come from over 60 countries around the world. The diversity of the student body contributes to the dynamic exchange of ideas and perspectives across all academic disciplines, and TUJ's integrated educational environment fosters the crosscultural sophistication to succeed in a global environment. Outside of the classroom, students have ample opportunity for social interaction with their peers through participation in various student organizations, activities and culture exchange programming.
The TUJ campus occupies several floors within two office buildings in the Minami Azabu and Mita districts in central Tokyo. The area is home to the offices of many international companies and a number of embassies, several of which are in the immediate vicinity of TUJ. Keio University and Meiji Gakuin University are both less than a 10-minute walk away. Shops and restaurants around the campus cater to the embassy and foreign communities in the area. Restaurant options range from traditional Japanese washoku and kaiseki to international cuisine.
TUJ is within easy reach of a number of exciting Tokyo neighborhoods, including Shibuya, an entertainment area popular with young adults. The Imperial Palace, where the emperor resides, the Diet Building (Japanese legislature), and the shopping districts of Ginza and Shinjuku are all less than three miles from campus.
TUJ is accessible by Tokyo's famous public transportation system from every part of the greater Tokyo metropolitan area and is within walking distance of the Shirokane Takanawa, Mita, and Azabu Juban subway stations and the Tamachi train station on the Yamanote line.
