23 Best Art & Design schools in Tokyo

Below is the list of best universities in Tokyo ranked based on their research performance in Art & Design. A graph of 97K citations received by 9.78K academic papers made by 23 universities in Tokyo was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish between 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 the university website.

Please note that our approach to topical rankings is based on scientific outputs and heavily biased on art-related topics towards institutions with computer science profiles.
