Yokohama Campus and The city
The Yokohama Campus of Meiji Gakuin University, the home of the Faculty of International Studies, is set in the green hills of western Yokohama. Its unique location offers students convenient access to downtown Tokyo and many other places of interest and beauty.
Yokohama and around the city
Yokohama has long been known as Japan’s most international port. Today, this very modern city continues to charm visitors with the ambiance of its culturally diverse districts. Yokohama Station is a ten-minute train ride from the station closest to the Meiji Gakuin campus.
While Yokohama to the north highlights the dynamism of modern Japan, a fifteen-minute ride south to Kamakura will bring you into contact with the legacy of Japan’s pre-19th century history. A former center of warrior rule that now has many temples, shrines and quaint shopping streets, Kamakura is a highly popular destination for visitors to Japan. You can also gaze out upon sweeping vistas of Mt. Fuji, Enoshima, and Sagami Bay from many spots along the nearby shoreline.
