Founded in 1926, Toyo Gakuen has a history of more than 90 years in higher education based in Tokyo, Japan. This co-educational university now enrolls about 2,000 students and emphasizes liberal arts programs which provide the intellectual and human training necessary to live in the dynamically changing world.
Toyo Gakuen has also been recognized as a university with a strong focus on language education, as globalization necessitates greater international communication skills. We encourage students to travel and study abroad so they can gain exposure to diverse cultures. Based on such experience, we hope our young men and women will some day contribute to the cause of enhancing brotherhood among all people.
