Tokyo may be the capital of Japan, but you could argue that Kyoto is Japan’s cultural capital. Both are appealing, fantastic places, but what’s it really like to live and study in each? Find out from an Indonesian student who’s lived in both! He outlines differences in cost of living, fun activities, transportation, and more!

Study Kyoto Tour: Humanities Tour Experience
Study Kyoto didn’t stop with the arts! There was another tour for students interested in studying the humanities. Find out about the fun cultural activities on this tour, universities that students visited, and how they even made some friends with local Japanese students!
