Outline of the event

11th Concept



Kyoto Student Festival
was born 10 years ago in 2003 With the support and cooperation of many people, 10 years have passed since its birth. We will continue to cherish the "connections" we have built up so far and carry on the tradition of the Kyoto Student Festival.

With the beginning of a new decade and
the aim of continuing to grow as we look ahead to the next 10 years, we will take on unprecedented "challenges" and lay the foundation for the Kyoto Student Festival that will be loved for many years to come.

"Bring smiles and energy to the people of Tohoku, see and learn about the "now" of Tohoku with your own eyes, and disseminate what you have learned in Tohoku to Kyoto" In this project, a total of 93 people from 19 universities (24 executive committee members, 69 odorites) participated in Fukushima City, Nihonmatsu City, Fukushima City, Fukushima City, Fukushima City, Miyagi Prefecture, Sendai City, Matsushima City, Visit Natori City and touch the Kyo Flame! and exchange with Fukushima University's Disaster Volunteer Center.


Tohoku Project 2nd "Tell ~KYOTOHOKU~"

July 14, 2013 (Sun) AEON MALL Kyoto We
shared the charms of Kyoto and Tohoku from various perspectives by dividing what we actually saw, heard, and learned through our visit to Tohoku in May, as well as the current situation in Tohoku, into four categories: "Exhibition," "Crafts," "Food," and "Odori." In the craft project, many children made windmills and ris-up koboshi, which are traditional crafts of Fukushima Prefecture, and in the food project, they served zunda mochi and dondonyaki (dondon-yaki).

We provided high school students with an opportunity to expand their image of the university by communicating the appeal of Kyoto's universities and introducing university life to the executive committee members. In addition to fostering an image of going on to higher education, it also gave the university students an opportunity to think about their own future.

Popularization of the original creation odori "Kyo Flame Sodefure!"

We held more than 500 performances and visiting classes a year at various educational institutions, welfare facilities, and local events. This year, Kyo Flame Sodefure! The first adult (parent-child) team was born from the odori class, and we were able to provide a place for intergenerational interaction between participants as well as practice odori.

Student Support

Student Growth Program

The University Consortium Kyoto supports students' daily activities based on the principle of "creating independently," and hopes that the "interactions" and "experiences" with a wide variety of people experienced through independent activities will lead to new "awareness" and "learning" that will lead to student growth.
We are working to create a system that promotes student growth by promoting the following support methods with the goal of smooth execution of activities, improvement of projects, and continuous development of projects, adopting the PDCA cycle method that emphasizes student activities as a single project, working as a team, and producing results as a team.

PDCA Cycle
at Kyoto Student Festival 1. Planning period (around November ~ May): Gathering information, giving awareness, and planning
2. Trial period (around May ~ September): Implementation of pre-planning (medium-sized project imitating the main festival) 3. Verification period (around July ~ August): Implementation of interim review meeting 4. Implementation period (October): Implementation of this project 5. Dissemination of results (around October ~ November): Implementation

of post-event review meeting and result report meeting

Interim review meeting (verification period)

Sunday, August 25, 2013 / Campus Plaza Kyoto
Lecturer: Masami Mori (Professor, Faculty of Social Sciences, Kyoto Bunkyo University) With the October festival approaching, we created an opportunity to check the progress of the team and the whole group, to reflect once again to see if we have lost sight of our own goals and direction,
and to reaffirm the necessity of team collaboration through sharing within departments and group presentations.

Post-reflection meeting (dissemination of results)

On Sunday, October 20, 2013, Campus Plaza Kyoto Lecturer: Masami Mori (Professor, Faculty of Social Sciences, Kyoto Bunkyo University) After the festival, each executive committee member was given an opportunity to reflect on the significance of the activities and initiatives at the Kyoto
Student Festival, what they learned from it,
and how they can be applied to the next stage through group work.

Implementation Report

The Kyoto Student Festival, now in its 11th year, was based on the concept of "weaving relationships and new challenges," and while valuing the "connections" that have been built up so far, we took on unprecedented "challenges" with the aim of making the Kyoto Student Festival continue to grow even more with an eye on the next 10 years.
This fiscal year, we established the Annual Exchange Department, and have been putting more effort into year-round activities than ever before. We also conducted the Tohoku Project as part of our charity activities. In addition, we have taken a step toward internationalization by launching the "Internationalization Promotion Project," a long-term project that does not end in a single fiscal year.
As described above, this year, we were involved with many people in various activities throughout the year in addition to this festival, and by weaving that "connection" into this festival, we have developed a project with the aim of making the Kyoto Student Festival even more attractive and loved for a long time, and at the same time raising its name recognition.


We would like to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who came to the venue and all the people involved who supported us in various ways in holding this festival, and would like to report on the event.
