  • This is not an especially beautiful campus. There are a few icons, the clock tower being one of them, but the buildings are rather austere.  more »

  • 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.
