History


Walking with women, creating a new age

Chancellor, Jumonji Gakuen
Kazuo Jumonji

In 1922, Jumonji Gakuen was founded in Sugamo, Tokyo by Koto Jumonji with strong desire to establish a private school so as to allow as many women as possible to receive education, in cooperation with friends from Tokyo Women's Higher Normal School.
Our school philosophy is reflected in the words of our school song, “Live as a person with purpose to be of help for the society, training ourselves mentally and physically.”
The spirit of founders in hope of fostering women who can independently do good for the society with their own purposes in life has been handed down through generations to the present time with this school song.
While maintaining the spirit and lifestyle to “keep training oneself”, we will aim to achieve Jumonji’s unique education of women, flexibly responding to changes in the society.
