A day in Japanese college student life in the greater Tokyo area. Follow a Keio University student from morning until evening. This is a day in the life of University student in Japan attending Keio University, one of the top universities in Japan. Japan university student life is much different than the Japanese salaryman life as college students have a bit more freedom to pursue hobbies, especially in their senior year of school in Japan. An average Japanese student in Tokyo may have between 15-23 course hours per week while a Japan University student 4th year Senior will have much less such as 9 hours of course hours per week. Yusuke, 22 year old Policy Management Major at Keio University lives with his parents in a 2 story house which is commuting distance to school via train and bus. Typical Japanese University life outside of class and study, also allows for part-time jobs and also a social life with friends. In fact, many Japanese students take on part-time jobs and find the time to hang out with friends in groups and join Japanese University Circles. Generally, a typical Japanese student’s class semester grade is based on assignments, presentations, group projects and 1 final exam at the end of the semester. But one interesting aspect about the Japanese university grading system is that many teachers don’t let students know how each category is weighted so students can’t calculate what they need to score on their final exam to earn a specific mark for the class. Watch the video and let me know in the comments how this compares to your University Life in your country.

To all the Japanese half or not Half Japanese appreciate your life you are so fortunate not all is born to have a comfortable life in their own country i know you guys why you feel toxic sometimes because of your too much accessible comfortable life that you overlooked and take it for granted even in a small difficulty for you is like a hell don’t forget there are more hell countries out there lack of water no proper facilities no proper toilets no proper transportation compare to your abundance easy life you need to appreciate this everyday.

Bruh ,I'm in my bed crying so stressed because I have so many homeworks and a lot to write trying to forget the problems and the issues that caused depression to me and now watching this video of an organized student with freedom and beautiful social life motivates me to kill myself.

My first time in Tokyo I remember going to a donut shop in Shibuya. These girls who were probably in there early 20s just left their purses at the table then walked 90ft away to order. They didn’t look back or check a single time. Now me being from Los Angeles I get my spare tire stolen at target.

Professors offering PDFs of textbooks? Not just the students hunting down free books because their financial loan couldn't cover it? Damb The sad reality of this is that if I went into campus for the last year for my school now, I'd be separate from social interactions and only go out solo or with someone I trust. I am not the best socially even with my friends I feel awkward 🙃
