Showa Women’s University – Tokyo
The school’s 3 principles are:
- Refined Elegance
- High Integrity
- Great Acumen
The founding of Showa Women’s University was inspired by the motto “Be a Light to the World.”
Upon establishing the university in 1920, founder Enkichi Hitomi explained in his “Opening Address” that women’s skills were now needed to transform a world devastated by World War I into one full of peace and hope.
Having founded not only a graduate school and university, but also a kindergarten, an elementary school, a junior high school, and a high school, the Showa educational foundation creates an environment for total education.
