OVERVIEW

Our university is located in Itabashi, which is only 7 mins from Ikebukuro by Train. As you may know Ikebukuro is a very big city with uncountable shopping places and restaurants, it is the best place to hang out after school there. From Ikebukuro, you can visit lots of sightseeing spots by underground or Yamanote Line. If you want to study peacefully, you would like the atmosphere of Oyama. Even though it is near the big city, here is calm and not lousy at all. You can enjoy staying in Tokyo with a way you want.

UNIVERSITY AND HOSPITALS

Nihon University is one of the biggest private university in Japan. It has tons of departments and all campus are located in Tokyo. Sadly, the medicine campus is isolated and there are not so many students compared with the total number of students in this university.

RESEARCH PROJECTS AND LABS

Biochemistry: Molecular biology of nuclear receptors and molecular pathophysiology of metabolic diseases and cancers

BOARDING

You will get 500 yen for one meal per a day. You are responsible for all other meals of the day yourself. There is a school cafeteria in our university. Furthermore, there are some restaurants and convenience stores around the school. Your contact person will let you know at your first day.

LODGING

Homestay. Since we do not have any dorms for international students, we only accept with homestaying. And with this reason it is difficult to have more than two students at the same time. It is especially difficult to have students in the same homestaying place. If you plan to come with friends for a same place you have to ask us first. And please do not hope so much.

TRANSPORTATION

From Narita Airport, you can take an airport bus heading to Ikebukuro. Then, take another bus from the bus terminal of the west exit in Ikebukuro. Its bus is numbered 05 heading to Nihon University Hospital as its destination. Or you can take Tobu-Tojo Line and go to the nearest station called Oyama. However, since it takes 15 mins on foot from there, we recommend you use the bus from Ikebukuro.

SOCIAL PROGRAM

In summer, we organize some programme every week. Because we are in Tokyo, there can be various social activities such as visiting Zoo, National museum, sightseeing places, etc.. For night activities, you can enjoy a drink night, and if it is summer we also plan to have a traditional Japanese cruise party called "Nouryousen". The night cruise party will be your precious memory for sure.

MUST SEE

The number of sightseeing spots in Tokyo is uncountable. Because it is too many, you might want to ask your contact person before your arrival. We can arrange a social programme for your preference.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Nothing much.
Your instructor would ask you to fill in a paper for vaccines at your first day in our university.
Also, for those who plan to come with friends, please take a deep look at LODGING.
