During its long history, Okayama University has
managed to develop on a grand scale, with 11 Faculties, 8
Graduate schools, 3 Authorized Research Institutes, a University
Hospital and Attached Schools. Our university has broad richly
verdant campus in the heart of Okayama City, which has such a
mild climate called "The Sunny Country". Currently about 20,000
students, including exchange students, and faculty members
devote themselves to studies in this felicitous environment.
Okayama University, situated near downtown Okayama City, is just
two kilometers from Okayama Station, making it an easy commute.
Despite being in the heart of the city, the sprawling campus,
with its luscious greenery, has a quiet atmosphere conducive to
study and research. Okayama Station is a key terminal drawing
together the main railroads of western Japan. As a major
transportation hub for the Chugoku and Shikoku areas, it is
always bustling with people. Tokyo can be reached in three and a
half hours, while Osaka are within an hour by Shinkansen.
