Meeting Minds in Tokyo

More than 500 alumni and guests joined us in Tokyo, 20-22 March 2019

You can view highlights of the Weekend in our Facebook gallery or take a look at our Twitter moment to see tweets and photos from guests throughout the sessions.

Stimulating academic sessions
The full-day academic programme highlighted the latest Oxford research across a breadth of disciplines, and saw some of Tokyo's key figures discussing issues of the day. Topics included the impact and legacy of the forthcoming Olympic Games, the science behind living longer, the impact of climate change and a demonstration of traditional Noh mask carving. 

Exclusive views of Tokyo
We explored the ancient winding streets of Edo period Tokyo, along side the bustling modern streets on guided walking tours of the City.

Stunning social events
We caught up with friends and made new ones at college and department events on the Friday night, experienced the beautiful Happo-en gardens for our black-tie dinner, and enjoyed breath-taking views of the city on board the Sunday brunch cruise.
