University Overview

Founded in 1900, we are the first institution in Japan that opened the gate of art education for women with aim of empowering women to achieve independence through the arts and are still the only women’s art university in Japan. For 122 years, we have produced more than 70,000 talented female artists, designers, and educators. Among them are the artists who made a great contribution to the history of Japanese modern art and the designers of popular characters such as Hello Kitty, Cinnamoroll, Gudetama, and Rilakkuma. We focus on creating an educational environment where women artists can produce works freely, safely, and comfortably with learning.
