The excellent location is one of the best parts of the Aoyama Business School, set in the Aoyama Campus of Aoyama Gakuin University.
Cafes and shops line the streets of Shibuya, Omotesando, and Harajuku in the areas surrounding the campus. These spots pulse with energy until late into the night. Of course, the vicinity offers more than fun hangout spots. With a wealth of educational institutions such as the United Nations University and cultural facilities both large and small like art museums and galleries, this spot is sure to satisfy a diverse assortment of intellectual interests.
Easy access is another feature of the Aoyama campus.

The library academic information system, which allows simultaneous searches of the book inventories of all three library facilities, including the Woman's Junior College Library, also includes a website which facilitates searches made from any location, even outside the school grounds. Furthermore, with the availability of an external information service featuring the book inventories of the National Diet Library and libraries of other universities, this is a superior referencing system.
Seminars using library resources and group reading rooms which also function as team research spaces are also available, making the library useful for group study as well.
With its easy access to public transportation, many business people continue to use the library after graduation.
