Planning purpose

Attractive areas such as rich nature, historical buildings, traditional performing arts and crafts There are many cultural resources.

Kyoto. We would like to utilize these cultural resources, provide visitors with learning and experience opportunities, and disseminate Japanese culture to the world.

Kyoto's traditional culture and historical heritage are unique in each location, and are popular from both Japan and abroad. Many tourists visit. However, tourism should not only be about seeing things, but also about learning and having fun. In this symposium, Kyoto student ambassadors, including exchange students, will present their thoughts on what ``attractive Kyoto'' is.

Ambassadors are enrolled in universities and vocational schools in Kyoto, and are involved in the history and culture of Kyoto. We are working to re-examine modern Kyoto and rediscover its value from a variety of perspectives, including nature, food, industry, and innovation. In this symposium, we will introduce new attractions and possibilities of Kyoto based on the results of the research and interviews conducted by them, and we will interact and exchange opinions with the participants through discussions. This project aims to provide an opportunity to understand Kyoto more deeply, think of new ways to enjoy sightseeing in Kyoto, and discuss ideas for creating opportunities for tourists to become more involved with Kyoto.

Take a moment to think about the charm and future of Kyoto with the student ambassadors who are responsible for the future of Kyoto. This will be a great opportunity to increase interest in Kyoto's tourism, looking to the future, and transmitting and weaving history and culture to the world.
