Main Building

The core facility on the campus where students, staff, and faculty gather

Nearby, a waterfall tumbling down and a large camphor tree welcome visitors into a refreshing atmosphere. As the core facility on campus, the MainBuilding contains the facilities listed below for each floor. A multipurpose square with terrace seating on a green lawn opens up in front of the restaurant in the MainBuilding.

Support for student life

The Main Building houses a variety of facilities to support student life. The glassed-in Himawari restaurant located on the first floor is an airy, bright space. It also includes outdoor terrace seating as well as seating on the second floor. The second floor includes the Rindo tearoom, vending machines in the lobby, and a branch of the Kinokuniya bookstore. In short, an effort has been made to provide everything a student needs, including everyday items.
