I wished I had studied at a school which had architecture like this.
Both my universities in Malaysia and Niigata were fairly modern compared to those which had hundreds of years of history and legacy. I was the pioneer batch when I entered MMU to do my Bachelor's degree, and IUJ had just celebrated its 25th anniversary the year I graduated.
Coming in from the main entrance of Tokyo University, the path leading to the clock tower is lined with towering trees on both sides.
I had casually mentioned that I would like to visit 東大 (Toudai - short for Tokyo University) one day just to have a feel of its grounds. The Hongo campus is just a stone's throw away from GAP, and I've walked past the campus on several occasions when on the way to church. So, Oppa and Yuri invited me to have lunch with them.
I think having a graduation ceremony and a picture taken with your graduation robe with this as a background would have conveyed a sense of academic elitism, more so when it's a university which has a reputation of being an ivory tower in the Japanese circles.
