"I'm nearly unable to find the words to express how enriching it was. The cultural learning, the people I met, the unbelievable places and artwork I saw-- everything. Every single day was a learning experience and one of great beauty and fun."

After five successful years of the UNO-Japan: Study at Doshisha University summer program in Kyoto, Japan, we are looking forward to another great summer in 2015! One of the most picturesque, historically and culturally rich cities in Japan, Kyoto serves as the perfect backdrop for students to learn the Japanese language and take courses in such fields as Japanese Language, Art, and Film. Incorporating Honors options in most courses offered, the UNO-Japan: Study at Doshisha University program has something for just about everyone!

This five-week adventure is in the city of Kyoto, where students learn and live in the cradle of Japanese civilization. Join us next summer and take advantage of a unique opportunity to study where cultures merge and history emerged. The ancient capital of Japan, Kyoto has a rich tradition in the arts, literature, and language. Participate with other students in a fascinating journey of excitement and discovery. Each of two courses carry three hours of credit and emphasize the exploration of this culturally-rich world. Field trips that include a day in Kyoto plus visits to Osaka (historically the commercial capital of Japan) and Nara (the capital of Japan from 710-784) are offered as part of the program. Don't wait! Sign up today and join other students on the adventure of a lifetime.

The UNO-Japan: Study at Doshisha Program is proud to have had the opportunity to carry on with the program despite the tragedies that occurred in the Tohoku region of Japan in March of 2011. We thank our steadfast hosts at Doshisha University, the faculty, and most importantly the students. Together we helped, in our own small ways, to contribute to the recovery of Japan. Those of us who endured Katrina remember the help we received from our Japanese friends, and also how important it was for us to continue with "business as usual" in any way possible.
