Students at the Japan Project Center conduct their projects at either Osaka University or Ritsumeikan University, two of Japan’s leading universities. The city of Osaka is located in the Kansai region of Japan's main island of Honshu and is Japan’s third largest city. Filled with business, food, and entertainment venues, as well as historic and cultural attractions, Osaka offers an eclectic mix of old and new while Kyoto, the "heart of Japan" boasts many important cultural sites. Kyoto is the old imperial capital of Japan and is considered to be the cultural heart of Japan. It balances is traditional focus with investment into modern technologies, and is now famous for its game and animation studios.

Please note: this program typically runs from mid July to early October.

•An AR App to explore Kyoto through directional sound with traditional instruments.

•A 4th dimensional VR space using Vive.
