View Larger Map



Situated near the northwest coast of Japan’s main island of Honshu and 4 hours north of Tokyo, Minami Uonuma-shi is surrounded by the Echigo-sanzan mountains and allows for various outdoor activities, such as skiing, hiking and bike riding. The rural location also allows students to experience the wonders of a traditional Japanese culture. The climate is similar to that of northeast Ohio with snow in the winter, hot summer and mild spring and fall.

Small and intimate—with less than 300 students, IUJ offers graduate programs in business, international relations, public administration and related fields. Its students come from around the world; IUJ boasts alumni from more than 100 countries.
