【Capacious Metropolis,Yokohama】
The campus of YNU is located in Yokohama, a big city with convenient access to Tokyo and Haneda Airport. Less crowded than Tokyo, this charming city not only attracts many foreign and local visitors, but also provides an excellent living environment as a safe and comfortable commuter town.
Having experienced a unique transition from a small fishing village to Japan's second largest city in just 150 years, it is the starting point of Western culture in Japan, including railways, daily newspapers, city lights, water supply, tennis, and beer.
【Green Campus】
The Tokiwadai Campus is home to all undergraduate colleges and graduate schools of YNU. It was constructed on a piece of land vacated by Hodogaya Country Club, the first 18-hole golf course in Japan. The green campus just 3km away from Yokohama Station creates a park-like atmosphere, and has an excellent environment for studying and researching, as well as a relaxed campus life.
                                                                                                
【ゆとりある大都市、横浜】
YNUがキャンパスを構える横浜は、東京や羽田空港からアクセスが良く、大都市ですが東京ほど混雑していません。外国人を含め、大勢の観光客が訪れるお洒落で魅力的な街ですが、ベッドタウンでもあるため生活環境が整っており、安全で住みやすい街です。またわずか150年で小さな漁村から日本第2位の大都市に発展した非常にユニークな歴史を持つとともに、鉄道・日刊新聞・街灯・水道・テニス・ビールなど、多くの西洋文化の「日本発祥の地」でもあります。
【緑豊かなキャンパス】
すべての学部・大学院が集まっているYNUの常盤台キャンパスは、日本で最初の18ホールのゴルフ場である「程ケ谷カントリー倶楽部」の跡地に建てられました。横浜駅からわずか3㎞しか離れていませんが、まるで公園のように緑が広がっています。勉強・研究に集中できるとともに、リラックスした学生生活が過ごせる理想的な環境です。
