Why study in Tokyo?
Tokyo is an exciting urban maze, a true megalopolis of interconnected towns each with its own identity. The city has a great concentration of creative energy, global modernity, and wealth. An extensive train and subway system connects all the main city centers and sites, making it easy to get around.

MGU, founded in 1877, is one of the oldest private institutions in Japan and has a long history of international cooperation in education. The university has two campuses, one in the heart of Tokyo (Shirokane) and the other in the more spacious suburban setting of Yokohama. Both campuses provide international students with numerous opportunities for participation in the academic and social life of the university.
