Saint Paul’s University (Rikkyo University), in Ikebukuro celebrates the school festival in November, where food, music and entertainment are provided for other students and visitors.
The University founded in 1874, with the Ikebukuro building being built in 1918. The school buildings are gorgeous and well maintained, as only a private school can afford to do.
The School library is relatively new, completed in 1960, but its design manages to keep the harmony with the older buildings.
The festival is not so different from other countries school festivals, apart from the menu on the stands, and some of the bands music.
The festival is open to everybody and looking at the attendance, seems like some of the students invited the whole family.
