"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 eight successful years of the UNO-Japan: Study at Doshisha University summer program in Kyoto, Japan, we are looking forward to another great summer in 2017! One of the most picturesque, historically and culturally rich cities in Japan, Kyoto serves as the perfect backdrop for students to learn about Japanese history, cinema, culture, society, and language! Open to university students from around the US, 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 for the summer of 2017 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 the 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.
