    I earned myself a clinical elective in japan. Now I need to choose which university to go to. Cause we are given a choice.

    I would like to go somewhere where there are some nice sightseeing opportunities and an interesting culture. Like festivals and such events. And good food too. However at the end of the day I would like to go to a good university.

    This is the list of universities available,
    Nihon University
    Nippon Medical University
    Tokyo Women's Medical University
    Toho University
    Osaka City University
    Kansai Medical University
    Kyoto Prefectural University
    Hokkaido University
    Sapporo Medical University
    Fukushima Medical University
    Jichi Medical University
    Dokkyo Medical University
    St. Marianna University
    Tokai University
    Kitazato University
    Hamamatsu University
    Fukuoka University
    Univ of Occupational and Environmental Health (Sangyo) University
    Asahikawa medical University
    Kawasaki medical University
    Shimane University
    Kurume University
    Miyazaki University

      I went to Kyushu University in Fukuoka for a year during undergrad and I really enjoyed living in the city of Fukuoka...it's a medium-sized city with a fairly warm climate and friendly people. Plenty of festivals and culture, but less high-tech and urban than Tokyo or Osaka.

      I also visited Oita during that time and it was also very nice, but a little more rural. Known for hot springs and nature.

      I think geographically speaking, you might want to be in Kansai (Kansai univ, Osaka city) or Kantou (Tokyo women's etc.) so you can experience one of the big cities.

      Hokkaido and Sapporo are very nice to live in as well, but far removed from the rest of the country, so if you want to travel around Japan that might be hard. Might be good to be in Hokkaido if you're going during the warm months!

            Keio is probably the best, Nagoya is also good too. I'm going by general reputation, i don't know which is best for plastic surgery although generally you can't go wrong with the oldest uni in Japan and a National 7.
