From the airports
There are two international airports near Komaba Research Campus of the University of Tokyo: Narita International Airport (NRT) and Haneda Airport (HND). By trains, it needs more than 2 and a half hours to the campus after arriving at Narita International Airport, and more than 70 minutes after arriving at Haneda Airport. It takes more by taxi (and expensive).
Please visit the website of each airport for details.

To the campus, from Komaba Toudaimae Station
(This route is the shortest and the easiest.)

The campus is about 10 minutes on foot from Komaba Toudaimae Station of Keio Inokashira Line. Komaba Toudaimae Station is the second stop of the local train of Keio Inokashira Line from Shibuya Station. Shibuya Station of Keio Inokashira Line is on the first floor of Shibuya Mark City Building.
Please use a local train on Keio Inokashira Line, because express trains do not stop at Komaba Toudaimae Station.

  • Please go out from the west exit (west ticket gate) of Komaba Toudaimae Station. The west exit is located downstairs from the platform. The downward stairs and an elevator are at the west end of the platform (the same direction of the trains from Shibuya).
    Please be aware that the neighboring campus on the north of the station (Komaba I Campus) is NOT the symposium site.
  • Komaba Research Campus is right down the street upslope to the west from the north side of the west exit (opposite side of the railroad tracks from the ticket gate) of Komaba Toudaimae Station. This street upslopes to the west along the right side of Keio Inokashira Line in the first 150 m, and turns right (to the north) in about 400 m from the station. About 60 m north from this right corner, the east entrance gate of the campus is on the left of the street.
  • Passing through a building in front of the east entrance gate of Komaba Research Campus, the building of the symposium (An block) is ahead on the left.

Please visit the access map of IIS for details.

To the campus, from Yoyogi Uehara Station
The campus (main gate) is also about 12 minutes on foot from Yoyogi Uehara Station of Odakyu Odawara Line (the main line) and Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line. Yoyogi Uehara Station is the fourth stop of local train, and the first stop of express train of Odakyu Odawara Line from Shinjuku Station.
(The route is rather complicated, and includes steep upward slopes.)
