On our way to Shinobazu Pond, our driver took us along the fence line of the University of Tokyo and passed by Tetsu-mon (Iron Gate) of the faculty of medicine. It’s a very large campus.

I never been to Tokyo university even working near there, finally I entered the labyrinth. 職場が近いのに、一度も足を踏み入れたことのなかった東京大学。ついに先日潜入に成功しました(笑) 思ったよりも広くて迷いつつ、弥生門から正門に抜け道。 かなり古い建物が多いのかと思いきや、スタバとかもあってびっくり。 今度は昼間、行ってみよう。

If you are coming from or going to the Tokyo Dome or Ueno Park, or just strolling through Bunkyo-ku, a lovely Tokyo neighborhood where I have lived, the University of Tokyo, one of Japan's leading university, is worth a visit. It's a walk-through.
