"It’s a great thing LUJ exists because it gave me a lot of opportunities ... if you like to challenge yourself and make awesome friends along the way, then LUJ is definitely not a chance to miss.”
What I like most about LUJ is that everyone that works here is always willing to help; there is a family-like feeling that I have never felt anywhere else before. LUJ is... friends. LUJ is... family. LUJ is... fun. LUJ is... for everyone!!!”
"Lakeland has been an amazing learning experience and, I believe, an exceptional place for ambitious people who seek to make their futures even brighter.”
"I had the possibility of exploring all kinds of interesting and enriching subjects; from the ones in which I was really interested, to some amazing ones that I wouldn't have considered before.”
"Lakeland has helped me start a new life and experience an entirely new culture. It’s easier for me to make friends when my classes aren’t so big, and I love how close the school is to my favorite places. Tokyo’s artistic culture is slowly getting me back into making art, so I'm lucky to be close to galleries and artistic hotspots.”
"I longed to immerse myself in the land and culture I looked for an education that could give me the best of both worlds. This is where Lakeland came into the picture.”
"Coming to this school is one of the best choices I have yet ever made. Thanks to LUJ, I'm ready to take flight to a brighter future. Life isn't simply about finding yourself, it's also about creating yourself.”
"LUJ has become my second home. I now have such great friends with whom I can talk and share things with. Everyone has given me the strength of looking forward to the light, and now a more challenging future is waiting ahead for me.”
So you're thinking of joining us in one of the safest big cities in the world? Japan's small size means that so much of the country is just a day trip away. Student activites, parties and class field trips take our students to numerous sites within the city limits, where the energy and diversity of Tokyo are waiting to be discovered.
Our campus is perfect for commuting access, and the surrounding areas give the opportunity to experience contemporary Tokyo and all of its Japanese modern, artistic, international, and traditional offerings as well. One step into the campus as you’re amongst friends and colleagues; a few steps out and a city of 35 million and unlimited opportunity is at your fingertips. New York may be the city that never sleeps, but Tokyo is the city that never ceases to amaze.
