The campus is spacious and lushly green, and shared with the Hyogo University Junior College (established in 1955).

Our Founding Spirit

In reverence to Prince Shōtoku, we highly cherish the concept of “Wa (harmony)” as indicated in his Seventeenth-article Constitution. The principles of our education and human development are based on the teachings of Mahayana Buddhism.
