The Alumni Association was founded in 1885―one year after the graduation of the first class. It is operated by participation of alumni and is formed from a network of over 540,000 alumni.
Waseda University invites alumni back to campus to rekindle/deepen friendships and to reunite with friends and teachers.
Any Alumni and their friends/families can participate in this “Homecoming Day”. We send out invitations to Alumni who have registered their contact address and who have been graduated for 25, 35, 45, and 50 years.
Tomon Festival is organised by the Tomon Festival Operation Committee (Authorized Alumni Association Group) and is a festival for alumni organised by alumni. Anyone from any graduate year may attend this event. There are many fun events such as programs held by famous alumni, alumni music festival, refreshment booths, etc. This festival is held on the same day as the “Homecoming Day” organised by Waseda University every year. The Tomon Festival is not only open to those “Homecoming Day” invited guests but also OB/OG, current students and their parents, in order for them to enjoy this day at Waseda.
Limited souvenires that are especially designed for the Tomon Festival are also very popular. Half of the profits are used to manage the “Tomon Festival Scholarship” which supports current students.
Also, there are lottery tickets attached to these souvenirs for a lottery held on the day of the Tomon Festival, with chances to win luxurious gifts.

“Miyako no Seihoku” (To the Northwest of the Capital City) Episode
Our Alma mater, “Miyako no Seihoku”, was composed for Waseda’s 25th Anniversary. Initially, we invited proposals from the student body. However, in the absence of an outstanding entry among the 23 received, Shoyo Tsubouchi and Hogetu Shimamura, who were in charge of examinations, asked Gyofu Soma to write the lyrics. Gyofu managed to pen the masterpiece “Miyako no Seihoku” after more than ten days' intense effort. The music was composed by lecturer Tetteki Togi.
“Miyako no Seihoku” became widely known, and was eventually classified as one of the three greatest school songs, together with Dai-ichi High School’s dormitory song (”Ah Gyokuhai ni Hana Ukete”) and Hokkaido University’s dormitory song (”Miyako zo Yayoi”) composed in the Taisho period.
