Rikkyo University 立教大学 Rikkyō daigaku 2012年 08月 29日

Rikkyo University 立教大学 Rikkyō daigaku, also known as Saint Paul’s University, is a private university, based on Christian precepts, in Ikebukuro 池袋Bild,

The university was founded in 1874 by Channing Moore Williams, who was a missionary of the Episcopal Church in the United States. Now it is the largest Anglican university in Japan. Faculties of social and natural science have been also established.

In this beautiful university I was among 10 Japanese Students studying German and 10 German students studying Japanese taking part in an intercultural program activating and improving our language skills.

Beside our university activities we enjoyed a lot being in friendly teams and learning about our cultures and exploring Tokyo.

I could not blog in Tokyo life, therefore I write my blog with 6 weeks time delay. Sorry, but better so than not at all!!

Dario No Tabiji ダリオの旅路

皇居 Koukyou the imperial palace

 

My first visit in Tokyo was in the imperial palace park on August, the 29th.

 

Tokyo Imperial Palace ( Kōkyo; literally, “Imperial Residence”) is the main residence of the Emperor of Japan. It is a large park-like area located in the Chiyoda area of Tokyo close to Tokyo Station.

 

The pictures were taken in the area called Higashi-Gyouen. It is the only corner open to the public. The numerous meadows and ponds invite the visitor for a pleasant retreat from the bustle of the town.Bild
