The Kyoto Institute of Culture and Language prides itself on it’s tradition of quality. For it’s more than 40 years of operation, the Institute has provided the kind education you can only get in Kyoto to more than 3,000 students from more than 60 countries around the world. Besides studying Japanese, culture, and other academic pursuits, students of the school have the opportunity to meet and interact with Japanese students from other Kyoto universities and participate in joint activities such as sports events.
The Kyoto Institute of Culture and Language is located in the north of Kyoto City. Kyoto is often called the “Cultural capital of Japan” because it was the capital city for more than 1,000 years. The city definitely feels as though it is rich with history, but it is also ultra-modern, with many bleeding-edge technology companies headquartered there. The city is very walkable, and has all the amenities and conveniences of a big city, such as shopping, entertainment, and a huge variety of restaurants and food types to choose from.
