  • Drawn sound in the autumn, shimogamo shrine visit after the decades Buri have visited has been. Kindly let visitors from outside from the Festival is the Festival still is down. Inspiring nearly 45 years Buri West Auditorium. Now also active in the young students did strike a chord with students playing

  • Without saying a Word and know Kyoto. Yoshida main campus and Uji, recently in the Katsura Campus are. As far as General University (for a corporation) that is not in the on-campus hang are relatively free. I think good gourmet and exhibition facilities, including the Museum to visit because there are different types of dining room on campus.

  • Yoshida district was from the ground looking up one's feet on the contrary in deviation, student had in Kyoto, Kyoto is well visited. Remember that the star had been painted in the tile roof of the West Hall will be held live or play. Pass after a long time in the West Hall still and say the stars are still there. At this age and I see that Star adolescent, such as... I like the wise man?

  • A huge school which is often cited as being Japan's second best, but also as 'the best' in some fields like Biology and Chemistry. I guess it depends on how who rate the schools but as far as pure research output is concerned, I think Kyoto University is probably the best in the Basic Sciences while Tokyo University is better in the Liberal Arts, Engineering and maybe Mathematics. Comparison aside, a few labs of Kyoto University are leaders in their field. This is a good school, and perhaps the best for a few fields, if you want to study and pursue a career in academia and are interested in living in Japan unless you have a reason to live only in Tokyo.
  • I love this place,so quite,hav a nice restaurant,n hav a good taste chocolate tiramisu n mocha cake😁
  • Been here to attend international seminar about Indonesian Oil Palm Plantations!
  • Excellent university, one of the best in the world. This especially applies for Centre for iPS Cell Research and Application.
  • Kyoto University is Japan's second-oldest university, and its second-highest ranked university.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
