Doshisha was founded by Joseph Hardy Neesima in 1875 as the first Japanese school advocating the teaching of Christianity. Our founding spirit consists of three main principles: Christianity, Liberalism, and Internationalism. Doshisha has more than 29,000 students, and about 1,500 of them are from outside Japan.
