Although Japanese universities are much like universities anywhere, differences also exist.

This site explores some of these, from the superficial to the deep. My perspective is based on 12 years as an American at the University of Tokyo, as an exchange student, as a post-doc, and as a professor.

The aim is to help more people understand Japanese universities better.
