Kyoto Study Program: From Anime to Zen is a non-degree two week study program offered by the International Student Study Kyoto Network twice a year in the summer and winter.
The curriculum is designed to present a balanced introduction to Japanese culture, from the traditional to the modern. Classes are taught all in English by reknowned subject specialists from Kyoto’s many universities and colleges, and the program includes a number of field trips and special events around Kyoto, including a buddy program with local students.
The Study Kyoto Newsletter team tagged along on a delicious class, and heard what some of the students had to say.
