 About the Founder, Inoue Enryo


From the end of the Tokugawa shogunate to the Meiji era, as Japan encountered the "world" and was rapidly swept away by Europeanization, Inoue Enryo believed that it was essential to cultivate "ways of seeing and thinking" based on "philosophy" among the people in order to restore the Japanese people's sense of identity, and at the young age of 29, he founded the Philosophical Institute, the predecessor of Toyo University. At the young age of 29, he founded the ”TETSUGAKKAN", the predecessor of Toyo University.

I would like to introduce a video of less than 5 minutes on the life and achievements of Inoue Enryo that I would like all new students to know about as they enter Toyo University and work hard for their studies.
