For over 100 years since 1907,
Chikushi Jogakuen has been nurturing women's self-awareness.
The founder of the Chikushi Jogakuen school system was Rev. Tetsuei Mizuki. He had traveled to the United States at the turn of the last century as a Shin Buddhist missionary affiliated with the Hompa Honganji temple. While there, he observed that religiously based education for women was widely available, and he was deeply impressed by its impact. On his return to Japan, he embraced as his lifework the establishment of women's education rooted in the spirit of the Buddhist tradition. His aspirations culminated with the founding of Chikushi Jogakuen. Amid the great changes in society during its long history, the school system has consistently nurtured women's self-awareness and personal integrity.
