The Guides

Many of our visitors like our guides best. That's why we extended this section of Eastudies in spring 2007. The Guide to Tübingen has been updated. It's available in English and Japanese. With the help of students from Ritsumeikan University Kyoto we added an extensive (160 pages!) Guide to Colloquial Japanese. The internet's biggest Guide to Sharp's Zaurus PDA (previously available at has been included into Eastudies. Our popular guide on how to get an internship abroad is only again. (German Version only.)

Together with students from all of Kyoto's leading universities we are currently finishing our Guide for Exchange Students in Kyoto. We plan for a release in May. Later this year we will upload our extensive Guide to Financial Japanese.


All guides have been written by the staff of Eastudies. We also would like to acknowledge the support of the University of Tübingen, the Doshisha University Kyoto and the Ritsumeikan University Kyoto.

The staff is currently working on two new guides: Kyoto for Exchange Students and Advanced Financial Japanese. They will be added to the site in Q3,Q4 2007.
