  • At work we have been to Kyoto University. Nothing to noconoco came into being. Kyoto University students were playing in the square? The children of the neighborhood? I was feeling.

  • Drink wine, eat a steak in the Auditorium in front of the school cafeteria. Price is best in an atmosphere. Come and try out.

  • Yoshida campus to explore French restaurant under the clock tower, to eat lunch. Is open to the public, thank goodness. Lunch is 1600-2500 yen. There were signs around the campus of a college atmosphere.

  • 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.
  • Good place to walk for a tourist. ^_^ Especially night time.
  • I was here for an exchange program years ago and really had a great time. Courses are so so but Kyoto is a great place to be at!
