    To attend a Japanese university as a full-time student and graduate with a Japanese degree: you must pass the same exntrance exam that Japanese students spend their entire school career preparing for and complete the coursework in Japanese. That creates quite a few difficulties for potential foreign students. There is a significant population of grad students, especially from other asian countries (China and Korea especially), but the international undergrad population comes almost entirely from 1-year exchange agreements with overseas universities. These programs are designed specifically for international students and rarely use faculty or material from the main school and most international students never get a chance to mix with the actual student population in class.

    The main schools for international students are the "Gaidais" (or "foreign studies" universities: Kanasai Gaidai (which has a reputation as an "exchange school" and hosts over half of the international students in the whole country), Tokyo Gaigodai (which has about 200 a year, more than half from Asia), and Sophia University (a private Catholic school in Tokyo which was originally established in cooperation with Westerners and has some undergrad and graduate programs in English).

    Look at it this way... there are good schools in Japan, and there are mediocre ones. Better ones like Todai or Tohoku would definitely be pretty difficult to get into, and less prestigious ones would obviously have lower entrance requirements.
