Autumn Foliage at Tokyo University

Tokyo University
One of the hidden gems but stil kinda well known for their autumn foliage would be at the Tokyo University. There are 3 main entrances to the university and first we have the brown wood door which is the entrance to the agriculture faculty to the university.

Brown western styled buildings paired with yellow gingko tree leaves….ebbs some sort of academic feel to the overall atmosphere. (Maybe a little Harry Potter-ish)

Don’t you think the view is magnificent? (Ok, we can’t compare it to the famous views in Kyoto…..)

The school campus is all connected but I only have an hour to roam before my classes in school so I headed out of the wooden gate (agriculture gate) and walked down the main path towards the main gate.

It is located in the west of campus while facing Hongo dori. Combined with the porter’s lodge they registered as tangible cultural heritage.The year of the completion was 1912, and the designer was Chuta Ito.

How the child care centers transport the toddlers out to play outdoors. They are placed in a trolley for 4 toddlers and pushed out.

The famous Akamon (or “Red Gate”) of the University of Tokyo was constructed in 1827 and is one of very few surviving structures from the Edo era. At that time, the land which later became the Hongo Campus was occupied by the Edo residence of the Kaga-han (one of the old feudal aristocratic families of Japan). The gate was constructed and painted red in accordance with a custom observed at that time whenever a daughter of a Shogun married into one of the other aristocratic families. Only daimyo (feudal lords) of the highest stature were permitted to build gates of this size and style. It is the only gate of its kind remaining in the whole of Japan. It was moved to its current location (15m west of its original position) at the end of the Meiji era
