Theme Studies in Japan

The Prince Takamado Japan Centre and the Department of East Asian Studies coordinate a summer study abroad program in Japan. The 2-week program will be held at Ritusmeikan University, Kinugasa Campus, located in northwestern Kyoto, a 1200-year-old city rich in culture and art. A center of Japanese learning and culture, Kyoto is home to a number of universities and university students. Ritsumeikan University’s Kinugasa Campus is surrounded by such well-known temples as Kinkakuji, Ryoanji, Ninnaji, and Tojiin, and is a suitably tranquil setting for research and learning.

The theme for 2018 is “Western Comics Culture/s vs Japanese Manga Culture?”
