Founded in 1882 at the heart of Tokyo, WASEDA University is recognized as one of the most international universities in Japan. From 2014, Waseda started a four-week summer session at the undergraduate level.

Together with Waseda students, they fully explored Waseda and Tokyo, which is consistently ranked high among the best cities to visit in the world.
