Tohoku UniversityTohoku University gates winter

Tohoku University, or Tohokudai, is the third oldes,t of the former Imperial and now, Seven National Universities of Japan and was founded in 1907 but can trace its origins back to the Sendai medical school founded in 1736. From the beginning, it had an open attitude to its students, being the first university in Japan to accept female students (in 1913) and foreign students.

The ancient castle grounds of Sendai's famous feudal Lord Masamune Date, are home to the majority of Tohoku University's facilities, on what is now the Aobayama campus.  Protected for hundred's of years, first, by the Sendai clan, and then the military, the surrounding hilly terrain is covered by beautiful native fir forests.  In 1958 the Tohoku University Botanical Garden, was founded for research and education.  Covering approximately 490,000 square metres, it is home to flora and fauna of priceless academic value. In 1972, the garden was declared a natural monument, a first for a university botanical garden in Japan.
