Old Historical Sites, Worldwide Attractive City: Kyoto

Kyoto, the most famous historic Japanese city and the ancient capital, has been selected as one of the world’s top 3 cities to visit. Kyoto was the prosperous capital of Japan for more than 1,000 years until 1869 when the capital was moved to Tokyo. Even nowadays Kyoto's abundant culture, tradition and history continues to attract people.
Because Kyoto is the center of Japanese culture, you can feel the authentic traditional culture that emanates from the old buildings, like temples and shrines, that fulfill the street.
A long stay in Kyoto will allow students to enjoy the harmony of the authentic traditional culture and the seasons. ISI is planning to make full use of the resources offered by the beautiful city of Kyoto so both short-term and long-term students will enjoy their time as much as possible.
