Tokyo Tech will mark its 132nd anniversary on May 26, 2013. On this special day, alumni will gather together again in Ookayama on the verdant campus.
Tokyo Tech's Homecoming Day originated as one of the commemorative events planned for the Institute's 130th anniversary and was scheduled to take place in May 2011. However, due to the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011, it was postponed. A year later, in May 2012, the inaugural Homecoming Day was held and approximately 1000 graduates and their families visited their former campus on this occasion.
The 2nd annual Homecoming Day will welcome Tokyo Tech alumni with various events.
