List of universities in Japan

The following is a comprehensive list of universities in Japan, categorized by prefecture.

The list contains only universities or colleges, either four-year or two-year, that still exist today and are classified as "schools" according to Article 1 of the School Education Law. (See Daigakkō for universities that are not considered "schools".) Also, each university or college is listed in the prefecture in which its headquarters is located, not the location of their satellite campuses, etc. or that of some of its departments or divisions. For the list of universities that existed in the past or merged into another school, see List of historical universities in Japan.

A list of top ranked universities is available in the final section.
