About Hiroshima Jogakuin University

A private women’s college founded in 1886, Hiroshima Jogakuin University has a history of trailblazing for its host community.

Opened as Hiroshima Joggakai in 1886, it was the city’s first school for women and its first building in 1892 was one of its earliest western-style structures. In the 1930s it was among the highest-level vocational institutions for women in Japan.

Winning university status in 1949 made it Hiroshima’s first private university. The current campus in the suburb of Asaminami was constructed in 1960 and it introduced master’s courses in 1995 and doctorates two years later.
