Located in one of the more natural, lush areas of Greater Tokyo, yet 25 minutes away from the world’s busiest train station (Shinjuku), Ikuta Campus sits on top of a steep hill with a commanding view of the city. The campus provides the latest academic and physical education facilities, reflecting our commitment to the pursuit of the ideal university education.

Ikuta Green Park (ikuta ryokuchi) is one of the most cherished areas in all of Kawasaki. Surrounded by wooded areas filled with various oaks trees and vegetation, the park is located in the gently undulating Tama Hills. There are many varieties of seasonal flowers, such as the cherry blossoms on top of Mt. Masugata and the 1,200 Irises in the Iris Garden, as well as Hydrangeas, Camellias, Roses, and Azaleas in the Citizens' Flower Garden. Along with its nature and nature trails, the park is also home to the Taro Okamoto Museum of Art, the Japan Open-Air Folk House Museum (nihon minkaen) and the Kawasaki Municipal Science Museum (which has a planetarium).

Fujio (nom de plume of manga artists Hiroshi Fujimoto, one of the creators of Doraemon).
