    According to the Times Higher Education listing (2015), Japan's tops universities are; University of Tokyo, Kyoto University, and Tokyo Institute of Technology. I don't know how reliable this list is though. Here's the link https://www.timeshighereducation.com/world-university-rankings/2015/world-ranking#!/page/0/length/25

    We Japanese usually set ranking depending on difficulty to enter. I guess most of all Japanese people agree that Tokyo Univ is the top in Japan. In eastern Japan, Tokyo Univ is the top, while in western Japan, Kyoto Univ is the top, both are national universities. However, they are not definite answer because some univ have fame on specific department. For example, Keio univ is the top on Medical, Chuo Univ is famous for Law, and many Japanese politicians are from Political Science department in Waseda Univ. In addition, recently, some universities in rural area establish new departments which are focusing on success in job-hunting. So the ranking might change in near future if those new departments succeed.

Your fave autumn leaf spots

I know it's still hot right now in much of the country, but I'm already dreaming of the changing leaves (and cooler temps!) of autumn. What are your favorite autumn leaf spots across Japan? Here in Niigata I really like the scenery and colors around Lake Daigenta which is about a 30 minute drive from home!

Recommendation please for Effective JLPT study resources

Good day and happy summer to everyone! Please spare a moment to share your recommendations for effective JLPT preparation resources. I have been invited to work part time as an Assistant English Teacher even they knew I am not fluent in their language both written and verbal, but it was fun and I made it through. Since then, I came to appreciate teaching here but I was advised that I will be more effective and well compensated if I have an JLPT Certification. Please, would appreciate your recommendation as to where and how to map a successful study and preparation path. Also, I have a plan to volunteer and start up a reading and practice your everyday English in my community which is going to be once or twice a month program. Thank you in advance.

Therapy Cats

Hello! I heard it was hard to find apartments that accept pets in Japan. I have a therapy cat who will absolutely have to come with me on my journey. Does anyone know if Japan apartments recognize therapy cats or how hard would it be to get my baby accepted? Thank you for the help!
