The 125th Anniversary Room is an exhibition room situated on the 10th floor of the Okuma Memorial Tower (Building No.26) that was created as a historical area by the Main Gate, looking ahead to the new century. Construction was completed in February, 2006. The Okuma Memorial Tower, the 125-shaku-tall clock tower above the Okuma Auditorium, is a symbol of Waseda University’s 125 years of history, or in other words, the university’s first century; this new tower measures 250 shaku (75.75m) high, symbolizing the university’s second century, and was constructed so that it faces the Okuma Auditorium.
The 125th Anniversary Room is an exhibition room that was constructed at the same height as the peak of the Okuma Auditorium’s clock tower—125 shaku (approximately 38 meters.) It is mainly used to hold exhibitions that showcase the important historical artifacts owned by Waseda University.
Opening Hours: Monday – Saturday, 10:00 – 18:00 (During exhibition times)
Closed on Sundays, public holidays, and during the New Year period.
The room is also closed on other days designated by the university. (Opening times and days may vary depending on the exhibition being held.)
