Japan’s Premier University of Art and Design: Fostering Aesthetic Talent for the World

Musashino Art University traces its history back to the Teikoku Art School, founded in 1929. Now, as Japan’s premier university of art and design, the university boasts an educational philosophy of “fostering cultured artists” and “art education geared toward true human freedom” and has sent over 60,000 graduates out into society. The ability to explore questions that have no correct answers and express the answers found through engaging in art and design, is valued today more than ever. Our graduates are lauded for their creativity and communication skills, and have gone on to play important roles in many companies in various industries both in Japan and around the world. Since 2012, Musashino Art University has been the only arts university listed in the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology’s "Project for Promotion of Global Human Resource Development.” Our school aims to foster artists and designers with the language and communication skills necessary to go out and succeed in the world.
