Waseda University – Part 2

night view of shinjuku from waseda university

My last post on Waseda University was so popular, and one person who responded wanted more, that today I will offer a part two.

This first photo, above, is the view from my Friday night class in Building 11. Waseda University is in Shinjuku-Ku but is far enough away from downtown Shinjuku that you can see the high-rise buildings rather nicely.

The second picture is the view out my office window in Building 6. Even though this part of the building is covered in ivy, Waseda University is not part of the Ivy League. 😉

Finally, for today anyway, here is a shot of the university on the approach from Waseda Station on the Tozai Subway Metro Line. The Okuma Bell Tower can be seen in the background. Some sort of festival is going on pretty much non-stop. On Friday, November 6, the Athletic Festival will be held. Later this month, it appears there is going to be a Photo Journalism Festival.

    I’ve a chance to study in Tokyo as part of my college course in two years time. I’ve to decide at the end of this academic year though. The partner college in Tokyo is Senshu University? Know anything about it, being in the education circle and all?

    Love the blog, makes me want to study in Tokyo in a couple of years time.
