Why Tokyo?

The College of Intercultural Communication advises students to first think of their academic goals when considering their study abroad destination. However, in reality, many students have a destination in mind first. Tokyo is unparalleled. As a mega-metropolitan capital city, Tokyo exudes history, culture, art, gastronomic delights, uniqueness, modernity, tradition, and a generation of Japanese university students eager to challenge the world. Tokyo has two international airports and easily accessible shinkansen (aka bullet train) hubs—not to mention overnight busses that can get you to major destinations and one of the most intricate and on-time train systems in the world. Yet despite its size and population density, Tokyo can be surprisingly manageable.

About Ikebukuro

Ikebukuro is located in Toshima Ward, one of the 23 wards of Tokyo. It is in the heart of Tokyo, boasts a diverse immigrant population, and has the world’s third busiest train station. It is known for anime, entertainment, and a vast array of restaurants—not to mention Rikkyo University, which the Times Higher Education (2022) ranked as first among private Japanese universities and third among all Japanese universities in International Outlook.

About Niiza

Niiza, a city located in Saitama, the prefecture just north of Tokyo, is a suburb of the metropolis. Two major train lines run through Niiza, connecting it to Tokyo and major cities in Saitama. Large shopping malls, a shinkansen (aka, bullet train) station, and the historical city of Kawagoe are all easily accessible.
