I am Yasuhiro TSUKAMOTO, Dr. Ostrich.
As President of KPU, I always encourage my students to study abroad and to broaden their horizons and pursue further possibilities in their studies, research, and life in general.
I am always passionate about welcoming international students to my campus. Kyoto is the ancient capital of Japan, where traditional crafts and modern technology meet to create unique companies such as Nintendo and Kyocera.
We are waiting for you to come study with us at KPU, and strongly hope that you will create many innovations in the future.
