The Hongo Campus is surrounded by many of Japan's top colleges and universities, academic publishers, museums, libraries, and Edo Period temples. Jimbo-cho, an internationally known used-book district, and Akihabara, the center for IT goods, are 15 minutes from the campus. It is situated next door to the La Qua Amusement Park and Tokyo Dome, an all-weather baseball stadium. One can also get to all of the major downtown business areas, such as Marunouchi, Shinjuku and Shibuya, within 15 minutes. Junior and senior students take advantage of the central location of the campus as they conduct real-world research, write papers, attend seminars, and begin job-hunting.
