Kyoto Prefectural University
CREATING FUTURE IN KYOTO, JAPAN'S ANCIENT CAPITAL
The main campus of KPU, Shimogamo Campus, is close to the center of Kyoto City: 20 minutes' ride on the subway from Kyoto station, plus five minutes' walk from Kitayama station.
Seika Campus is located in the southern part of the prefecture and the research farm is also there. KPU also has six research forests within the prefecture.
Education and research at KPU are also conducted in collaboration with other institutes which include the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Kyoto Botanical Gardens, Kyoto Institute, Library and Archives, and Kyoto Municipal Institute of Industrial Technology and Culture.
I am Yasuhiro TSUKAMOTO, Dr. Ostrich.
As President of KPU, I always encourage my students to study abroad and to broaden their horizons and pursue further possibilities in their studies, research, and life in general.
I am always passionate about welcoming international students to my campus. Kyoto is the ancient capital of Japan, where traditional crafts and modern technology meet to create unique companies such as Nintendo and Kyocera.
We are waiting for you to come study with us at KPU, and strongly hope that you will create many innovations in the future.
