Toyo University was founded in 1887 as a school of philosophy. At its inception, the university was popular with the public as a small, specialized school in oriental philosophy and liberal arts. Today it consists of 11 graduate schools, a law school and 11 undergraduate schools located on four campuses in the greater Tokyo area. University enrollment is approximately 30,000 undergraduate and 950 graduate students.
Toyo University was the first ISEP member in Tokyo, allowing students to see and experience everything from this metropolis. This is an ideal university for students looking to truly immerse themselves in Japanese language and culture with students from around the world.

Tokyo, the capital of Japan, has a population of approximately 13.3 million. The city is the epitome of today's fast-paced urban lifestyle but still retains the quieter aspects of old traditions. It is easily recognized for its large-scale buildings as well as its subtle details — intensity and calm — a fusion that truly makes it a fascinating destination.
Toyo University's Hakusan campus exemplifies this fusion through its central location in the center of the city but also in one of the fascinating traditional districts. The Toyo University International House is also located in the heart of Tokyo and therefore provides ideal accessibility to all major areas, such as Shinjuku, Asakusa, Ueno, Ikebukuro and Roppongi. Also, the Hakusan campus is only 15 minutes away on foot.
Toyo University strongly believes that student activities contribute to the enrichment of campus life. With 50 athletic clubs and 300 other student clubs, everyone can find a group of students that share their interests. Students can also enjoy rooting for Toyo's baseball team, experiencing a weekend home stay, participating in various cultural events and more.
