Kyoto City Campus Culture Partners System

Business summary

Only students in Kyoto can enter cultural facilities such as the zoo, Nijo Castle, and art museums for 100 yen.

Kyoto City provides students with an environment that is friendly to culture and the arts, as well as opportunities to build contact points with the local community through participation in cultural and artistic activities. In 2010, we set up the Kyoto City Campus Culture Partners System to enrich the culture of Kyoto.

If you are a student of a university or a junior college that is a member of the Consortium of Universities Kyoto, you can receive preferential treatment such as discounts at each cultural facility by completing the enrollment procedure (free of charge) by yourself. You can also receive a wide range of cultural and art information.

We hope that all students who attend universities in Kyoto will take this opportunity to become a member of this system and come into contact with the diverse culture and arts that Kyoto City is proud of.
