    I thought we went to museums, eat French, can be quite different. Impression is surprising and ordinary students walking thought Kyoto was just a weirdo, but felt and television exaggerated size, interesting

    Didn't feel so many buildings are site wide. Main's halls Yoshida became Japan's oldest. Reminds me I've stayed in the past. I felt and still lined with billboards, continues the traditions of the past.

    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.

    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.
