Women’s universities in suburban areas of metropolitan Tokyo are
increasingly relocating to the urban centre in a bid to increase the
number of applicants to the universities, reports The Yomiuri Shimbun.
In recent years, such universities have opened new departments or relocated existing ones to places near stations in central Tokyo for commuting convenience. Challenges continue to mount for women’s universities, however, such as preferences for co-education and the fact that the number of 18-year-olds will begin to decrease from 2018.
