About Kyoto

As the Imperial Capital for over a thousand years, Kyoto is the birthplace and custodian of many of the ancient traditions that make Japanese culture so distinctive. Yet Kyoto is also a strikingly dynamic, forward-looking and innovative city – an apparent contradiction that students on the Kyoto program can explore through their academic courses and field trips, through interactions with their homestay families and Doshisha University students, and through meeting the people of this incredible city in everyday life.
