Study Kyoto Tour: Arts Tour Experience

Kyoto is a city where traditional Japanese arts remain prominently, and the city is also home to many universities where you can study art, illustration, and design! From July 26th-28th, Study Kyoto put on an arts-themed tour for potential international students looking to continue their studies in an arts university.
Our student participants were international students from Japanese language schools in Tokyo, hailing from China, Taiwan, and Korea.

Though the tour was just a short three days, the students got to experience a lot, walking around Kyoto, visiting universities, and talking with current international and Japanese students and making friends.
