Kyoto University - Graduate school of Economics

Throughout history, Kyoto has been at the center of Japanese society and culture. Today, Kyoto is renowned as a world-class center of innovation that simultaneously maintains its traditional industries. With over 40 universities and colleges, some 160,000 students, and over 7,000 international students, Kyoto is considered by many to be Japan’s principal center of learning.

There are so many mountains and tempels in and around Kyoto to explore. Apart from that, in the evenings I would go to small bars or do karaoke. The culture with all the tiny bars in Kyoto is really fun.
