Temple University Japan Campus, located in Taishido, Setagaya-ku, Tokyo, has surpassed 8 undergraduate students in the fall semester, which started at the end of August, reaching a record high.The Japanese government's easing of immigration restrictions had an effect on the number of students who had been waiting to enter Temple University.

 According to Temple University, Japan Campus, 265 students who had been waiting overseas to enter Temple University came to Japan in the fall semester, as well as about 140 international students from Temple University's U.S. main campus and other universities. A total of about 530 new students joined.New students who have come to Japan participate in welcome events organized by the Student Club and the Student Services and Exchange Department, enjoy numerous workshops and other events, and become familiar with the new campus life.

 Since the beginning of 2020, the Japanese government has severely restricted entry from overseas in response to the global spread of the new coronavirus.As a result, with a few exceptions, foreign students were barred from entering the country for more than two years, and some students gave up on the university and went on to study at universities in other countries with looser immigration restrictions.

 President Matthew Wilson said in a statement, "We are delighted to welcome so many students to our campus with the re-opening of Japan's borders."
