How to Find Us
Ritsumeikan’s BKC campus sits astride Japan’s main transit corridor, easily accessible from the majority of Japan’s major ports and cities by car, bus, and train.
Shiga, our host prefecture, is a traditional crossroad of commerce and industry and offers a rich, cultural atmosphere, thanks to the proximity of the traditional heart of Japan, Kyoto. The region is also home to the greatest concentration of manufacturing industry in Japan, including Panasonic, Nisshin, Toray, Kyocera, and, perhaps most famously, Nintendo.

The "BKC Shuttlebus" and various other buses bound for Ritsumeikan depart from the East Exit of Minami Kusatsu Station every few minutes.
