10 Best Painting and Drawing schools in Japan

Below is the list of best universities in Japan ranked based on their research performance in Painting and Drawing. A graph of 2.6K citations received by 417 academic papers made by 10 universities in Japan was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.

Please note that our approach to topical rankings is based on scientific outputs and therefore prefers institutions researching arts through computer science.
