129 Years of History with Christianity

Hiroshima Jogakuin University was founded as Hiroshima Jogakkai in 1886 (in the 19th year of the Meiji Era) by a devout Christian, Rev Teikichi Sunamoto. He invited a missionary, Miss Nannie B. Gaines, to be the first principal. She was assisted by the Methodist Episcopal Church, located in the southern United States. Since then, Hiroshima Jogakuin University has been fostering an attitude of pacifism and humanity based on Christian principles. “Human education based on Christianity” is our founding spirit.

Gaines Chapel

“Human Education based on Christianity” is the founding spirit of Hiroshima Jogakuin University, and Gaines Chapel is the symbol of our school which represents peace and humanity. The chapel is made of woods and bricks and it blends in with the surrounding natural scenery. Inside the chapel is a pipe organ, which was donated by the alumnae. The chapel accommodates 170 people. We can enjoy the beautiful sound of the carillon and the changing colors of light coming through the stained glass window.
