Founded in 1897 in the historic and culturally vibrant former capital of Japan, Kyoto University has, through open-minded dialogue and a liberal academic culture, fostered an academic spirit of independence and self-reliance, and developed its own distinct brand of higher education and advanced research. Its state-of-the art laboratories and research facilities enable students and researchers to have the hands-on practical experience that is vital to their academic development. Today, the univesity maintains those long-held values as a means to develop versatile and innovative solutions to pressing international issues, such as climate change and economic upheaval, and to contribute to the harmonious coexistence of the world's human and ecological community.
