Homecoming Day is held in appreciation of alumni and friends of Tokyo Tech.
Unfortunately, we had to cancel Homecoming Day 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, we plan to hold it for the first time as a in person-virtual hybrid event. I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the 9th Homecoming Day – especially those not able to participate due to physical distance, including alumni members living abroad - to find out about the latest developments at Tokyo Tech. There will be something for everyone: reuniting of the alumni and engaging activities for their families and members of the local community.

In March 2018, Tokyo Tech was given the title, a "Designated National University." With renewed confidence, the students, faculty, and staff are working even harder to meet the high standards expected of them at Tokyo Tech, a university that upholds education and research of top quality. Even with the current COVID-19 challenges, we focus on ensuring learning opportunities for students and producing research outcomes by making the most of lectures and research activities online.

The strong network of alumni is one of the pillars that supports the Institute. It is not just the students, faculty, and staff that make up our community. Members of the alumni and everyone who has lent their support in various ways are also considered to be part of Team Tokyo Tech. Ties that we build with society, not just through education and training but through research as well, are becoming ever more important. We hope that, as members of Team Tokyo Tech, our friends and alumni will continue to support us and work with us so that we may become the world's leading research university.

Note: Depending on COVID-19 circumstances, there may be changes to the execution of the 2021 event.
