Over seventy years ago,
the founder of KEIMEI GAKUEN, Takasumi Mitsui, returned to Japan
from England just before WW2.
There were no schools in Japan that accepted returning international students
who wanted to broaden their knowledge and language skills acquired abroad.

In April, 1940, Takasumi decided to open up his own house in Minato ward,
Tokyo to start KEIMEI GAKUEN with thirteen teachers and eight students.
Today KEIMEI GAKUEN has over six hundred students
who are eager to be leaders in ever growing global community.

Over thirty percent of the students have lived abroad and
each one of them contributes to make up diverse and dynamic learning environments
which represent today’s global world.
