Tokyo, the capital of Japan, has a population of approximately 12.5 million. The city is the epitome of today's fast-paced urban lifestyle but still retains the quieter aspects of old traditions. It is easily recognized for its large scale buildings but also for its subtle details - its intensity but also its calm - a fusion that truly makes it a fascinating destination.
Toyo University's Hakusan campus exemplifies this fusion through its central location in the center of the city but also in one of the fascinating traditional districts. The Toyo University International House ("I-House") is also located in the heart of Tokyo and therefore provides ideal accessibility to all major areas, such as Shinjuku, Asakusa, Ueno, Ikebukuro and Roppongi. Also, the Hakusan campus is only 15 minutes away on foot.

Toyo University was founded in 1887 as a school of philosophy. At its inception, the university was popular with the public as a small, specialized school in Oriental Philosophy and Liberal Arts. Today it consists of ten graduate schools, a law school, and ten undergraduate schools located on four campuses in the greater Tokyo area. University enrollment is approximately 30,000 undergraduate and 950 graduate students.
Toyo University is the first ISEP member in Tokyo where you can see and experience everything in Japan. This is an ideal university for students looking to truly immerse themselves in Japanese language and culture with students from around the world.
