Foreign Students Near 100,000

The Japan Times reports that the number of foreign students in Japan as of May 1 was 95,550, an increase of over 20% from last year. The majority (92.8%) come from Asia: China (61%); South Korea (16%); and Taiwan (4.5%). The schools with the largest foreign enrollment are Tokyo University (2,000), Josei International University (1,371), and Waseda University (1,368). The total is still short of the goal set by the government back in 1983 of 100,000 foreign students by the beginning of this century.
