Safety in Japan is the best that I have ever seen. the location is especially wonderful (nakano campus) and transportation is amazing. Trains come once every 5 to 10 minutes and are never late unless there is an accident or rain. Everything is extremely clean even though there are no public trash cans ANYWHERE. Excursions that you choose to go on and look up are once in a life time opportunities. I got to see the emperor make a speech, be in hot springs with snow monkeys, go skiing, visit a traditional Japanese house, etc. Coolest activities ever.

Every class except language classes are once a week for 1.5 hours
Most classes do not have midterms.
Almost all classes grading system is based only on attendance, participation, and the final.
(Finals are almost always essays)

Always plan ahead. Also, get to Japan before school starts so you can travel. They have no breaks once classes start.

Studying in Meiji is an amazing opportunity. Don't worry about missing a few classes and travel as much as possible. If you don't, you'll really regret it.
