The Tsukuba campus is located in the Tsukuba Science City, sixty kilometers northeast of Tokyo, the capital of Japan. It takes less than an hour by train to Tokyo. The Tsukuba Science city was made by advanced national project in 60s, which aimed to construct new science park and avoid from overconcentration to Tokyo by relocating national research institutes from Tokyo to Tsukuba. There are nearly thirty Japan’s leading national research institutes and about 150 private research institutes. In addition, among roughly two hundred thousand residents of Tsukuba City, 1 out of 10 is a researcher.This well-planned city sustains harmony with academic atmosphere and abundant natural environment. Pedestrian walkways connect our university, the station, the national institutes and huge greenery parks in the center area. The city provides environment to deepen your study and networks with researchers at the institutes in Tsukuba.
