Naruto University of Education was established in 1981 as a new-concept university with the philosophy of a “university for teachers.” The university aims at training not only new teachers but also in-service teachers at its graduate school. Since its inception, the University has made significant contributions to, and has been leading in teacher training research and practice (both new teacher training and in-service instructor education) in Japan.
The first president, Yoshiaki Maeda, was committed to building a campus based on the idea of “the environment as a silent teacher.” The University believes that a single visit to its beautifully maintained campus is enough to convince prospective students that the campus is an unrivaled environment for educational immersion.
Naruto University of Education is blessed with an environment rich in natural beauty and culture. The University is located in a scenic area adjacent to the Setonaikai National Park. Majestic whirlpools can be seen in the Naruto Strait near the University. Naruto is also home to Ryozen-ji Temple, the first temple on the Shikoku 88 Temple Pilgrimage. Nearby is the Otsuka Museum of Art, which houses ceramic reproductions of major international works of art.
