Korakuen

  

Korakuen Station is located in the Kasuga area of Bunkyo Ward of Tokyo, and is served by the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi and Namboku Subway Lines. Since the area is a low altitude one, the Marunouchi platform is located on the second floor of the station building. Korakuen Station is also directly connected to Kasuga Station by means of an underground pedestrian passage, and is integrated with the Bunkyo Ward Capitol Building and the Tokyo Dome City.

 

Chuo University (Korakuen Campus)

 

With what started as English Law School in 1885, Chuo University is today one of the largest and most prestigious universities of Tokyo with three campuses – at Hachioji, Korakuen, and Ichigaya. It follows a strong tradition of providing practical education based on British empiricism and rationalism, while maintaining the founding spirit of fostering human resources in a vibrant and supportive environment. Chuo University has six faculties - Law, Economics, Commerce, Science and Engineering, Letters, and Policy Studies, 26 departments, and seven graduate schools – Schools of Law, Economics, Commerce, Science and Engineering, Letters, Policy Studies, and Public Policy.

The Korakuen Campus of Chuo University houses the Faculty of Science and Engineering. It is located a 5-minute walk from Korakuen Station, on a terrace overlooking Korakuen Park and the Tokyo Dome baseball stadium. Equipped with the latest educational and research facilities, the Faculty is among the best in Tokyo and has produced some great alumni.

 

Toppan Hall

Toppan Hall is a well-known concert hall for classical music. Built with the unique concept of “box-in-box”, which keeps outside noise from coming inside, and excellent acoustics, the hall is an ideal place for both the performer and the listener. Toppan Hall has an area of 580 m². While the inside is all built of quince, birch and cypress woods, the outside wall is of granite and the roof of galvanized stainless steel.

 

Toppan Hall is a 10-minute walk from Korakuen Station.
