Classes for the second semester: Remote classes only, in principle.
However, some seminars, experiments and practical training can be conducted face-to-face based on the decision of each faculty.

Students travelling from or through designated areas at Infectious Disease Level 1 or above are not allowed to enter the university campus(es) or the university dormitories for 14 days.
Students are not allowed to return to the dormitory for 14 days from their date of entry into Japan in order to reduce the risk of infection or spreading infection to others.

During the 14-day isolation period, check your temperature (twice a day, morning and night),wash your hands frequently, practice correct “cough etiquette” and monitor yourself for symptoms including fever, cough or shortness of breath.
Download the checklist (PDF) (EXCEL)and monitor your condition. 
If seeking medical care, you should wear a surgical mask and contact the student affairs section of your faculty or graduate school ahead of time.
