From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Campus of the University of Tokyo is the first modern university in Japan. The University of Tokyo was largely undamaged during either the 1923 Great Kantō earthquake or the Tokyo air raids during World War II. As such the campus symbolizes a timeline of Japanese higher education history. For these reasons and others, many of the buildings on the campus are designated as being nationally important buildings. There are some colleges that are rated higher than the University for their buildings' architecture. This article gives an account of the buildings from the campus with a focus on registered important cultural properties or registered tangible cultural heritage that exists now or once existed with a historical significance.[1][2]

Hongo Campus[edit]

The Hongo campus has many historic buildings including the Yasuda Auditorium, the first registered tangible cultural heritage in Tokyo. Also notable are the front gate, or the porter's lodge, Faculty of Law & Letters Buildings 1, 2 and 3, the Faculty of Engineering (Reppin-kan), and the Faculty of Engineering Building 1 are all registered as of tangible cultural heritage. All of the buildings on campus, except for the front gate, were designed by Yoshikazu Uchida in a Gothic style now known as Uchida Gothic. One of the most notable examples of this style is the Faculty of Medicine Building 3 (administration building of Medicine), however there are many other Uchida Gothics on campus.[1] [2] [3]

Gates[edit]

  • The Front Gate
The Front Gate, completed in 1912 and designed by Chuta Ito, is located in the western part of the campus facing Hongo dori. The Front Gate includes the porter's lodge, which was registered as tangible cultural heritage.
  • Aka mon (赤門 Red gate?)
The "Red Gate" is located in the southwest area and faces Hongo dori. It is often mistaken for the Main Gate and so the University of Tokyo is commonly called the Aka mon.
  • Goshuden mon (御守殿門 Goshuden gate?)
The Goshuden Gate is located in Kami yashiki (上屋敷 , which is the close to the Edo Castle?), the compound which was owned by the domain lord of the Maeda clan. The gate was constructed at the time of the marriage ceremony of Yasu-hime (溶姫?), the 21th[clarification needed] princess of the 11th tycoon Tokugawa Ienari (徳川家斉?), to Maeda Nariyasu (前田斉泰 name of 12th lord?), the 12th lord of Maeda clan, in 1827. The architectural style of the gate is Yakui mon. The gate is known for its hafu (破風 gable?) gable roofed guard stations. It has been assigned as an important cultural property and was designated as a national heirloom.
  • Ikeno-hata mon (池之端門 Ikeno-hata gate?)
The Ikeno-hata gate is located in the eastern part of the campus and faces Shinobazu street. This gate is near the Yokoyama Taikan memorial house and the Kyu-Iwasaki-tei Garden. This gate allows access to the Ueno Station and the Yushima station. The gate is mainly used by hospital employees and medical students.
  • Tatsuoka mon (龍岡門 Tatsuoka gate?)
This gate is located on the southern part of the campus and was designed by Yoshikazu Uchida and completed in 1933. The name came from Tatsuoka-cho, the old name of Yushima. Tetsu mon (鉄門 Iron gate?) is very close to the Tatsuoka gate so most people confuse the two names of Tatsuoka mon with Tetsu mon. The nearby medical school of the University of Tokyo goes by the name of Tetsu mon, hence it was named as Tetsu mon in error.
A gate was installed before, but it was taken away when the construction of expanding gate piers started.[4] There is only one gate pier remaining to date now. Tatsuoka mon is open door all along the line, civilian vehicles are allowed free access. Near here there are Medical school, pharmacy laboratory. The University of Tokyo Hospital is also not too far from it and patients drive through the gate to the hospital.
  • Tetsu mon (The Iron Gate)
The Tetsu gate was located at the southern part of the Central Clinical Service Building from 1879 to 1918. In 1918 the university purchased some acres of private land outside of Tetsu mon. This land was later desposed of because there was no need to mark off the site of the university by the gate. The Tetsu mon that exists today was reconstructed on May 5, 2006 at the same location. Before the current gate was in place, the Tetsu mon was specified as the main gate of Hongo Campus".
Since formerly the admission building of the Medical School is located near the gate, the name of Tetsu mon becomes synonymous with the University of Tokyo Medical school or the alumnus of it. Nowadays there is Tetsu mon kinen kan (鉄門記念館 Tetsu mon gate memorial hall?) that serves commemorative purposes .
  • Kasuga mon (春日門 Kasuga gate?)
The Kasuga gate is located on the south side of the campus, and faces the Kasuga dori. In 2007, the gate was established as a renovation of an existing privy poster.
  • Nishikata mon (西片門 Nishikata gate?)
The Nishikata gate was completed in 2007, and is located at the northwestern part of campus and faces the Hongo dori as do the Aka mon and the Main gate. The Niskikata gate is a particularly small gate that is located behind the Faculty of Engineering Building 5. The gate is only available for pedestrians in order to get to the engineering department, formerly pedestrians had to go through the main gate of the Yayoi gate which was a rather cumbersome route to take. The installation of the gate provided "footslogger" with a greater convenience. In addition, the name of the gate was derived from the geographical name of where it is located.
  • Kaitoku mon (懐徳門 Kaitoku gate?)
The Kaitoku gate was finished in 2007 and was built near the entrance of the Toei Ōedo Line. The gate is in close proximity of the "University Museum of the University of Tokyo" and the "Faculty of Science Building 2". The gate's walls were made with the blocks of Kaitoku-kan.

Head office and Inter-University Research Institute Facilities[edit]

  • Administration Bureau
The Administration bureau building was designed by Kenzo Tange, and was built in 1979. It is located near the Tatsuoka mon and, as its name suggests, it is used as the head office of the University. The building has 12 floors, which was uncommon for 1979.
  • Administration Bureau Building 2
The second building was finished in 1976 as a Faculty of Science Building 7, and this building was also designed by Kenzo Tange. The building is situated next to the Administration Bureau, and its design is analogous to it. At first the building was used for the Mathematics, Science, and Geoscience departments. After the Mathematics department moved to the Mathematical Science Building in the "Komaba I" Campus and the Geoscience department's relocated to Building 1, it became the Administration Bureau Building 2.[1] Today it is used as the Administration Bureau, the Graduate School of Public Policy, the study-abroad office, and is a part of the Graduate School of Interdisciplinary Information Studies etc.
