Web Cam List


To use a webcam

  • Click on the blue "View the Web Cam" button for the site you wish to view. The Control/View page for that camera appears. (The page is in Japanese only.)
  • Click on the "+" button (or a web camera icon for Yoshida campus only) near the bottom right corner of the webcam box on the Control/View page, then you can control the camera for 20 seconds. You may need to wait for some time if someone else is already using the camera.
  • Please note that the visibility and zooming functions may be limited on certain web cameras for privacy reasons.

Viewing environment

To view a live webcam image, Java VM must be installed on your computer. If the camera page does not show the image properly or operates erratically, try downloading the latest version of Java from the Sun Microsystems site below:

Some functions, such as Preset, may be unavailable in Windows 7 or Internet Explorer 8. We are currently fixing the problem, so we ask that you please wait.

Please note that the operation may be slow depending on network conditions or due to heavy traffic.
