The University of Tsukuba traces its roots back to a teacher-training school which opened in 1872. This was followed by the opening of the Tokyo University of Education in 1949, and in 1973 the university was relocated and took its current name, re-founded with the aim of building an academic community that extends across Japan and throughout the world.
Dr. Jigoro Kano, who is known as the founder of Judo, served as the principal of the Higher Normal School and the Tokyo Higher Normal School, which were the predecessors of Tsukuba University, for 25 years. He advocated the philosophies of "Maximum Efficiency with Minimum Effort” and “Mutual Welfare and Benefit", as well as various educational initiatives such as realizing personal growth through the practice of Judo, the expansion of school education throughout Japan, the active intake of international students, and the development of sports education in Japan. Dr. Kano’s vision revealed not just an education plan for his students, but a model of education for universities in general for nurturing the talents of students and for bringing Japan to prominence on the global stage.
The University of Tsukuba counts among its alumni both Nobel Laureates and Olympic gold medalists. Nobel Laureates include former President of the university Dr. Shin-Itiro Tomonaga and former President of the University of Tsukuba Dr. Leo Esaki (winners of the Nobel Prize in Physics) and Professor Emeritus Dr. Hideki Shirakawa (winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry). In the Olympic Games, Sawao Kato (a professor emeritus of the University) won twelve Olympic medals including eight gold medals between 1968 and 1976 in artistic gymnastics. In recent years, Ayumi Tanimoto won gold medals in Judo at two consecutive Olympics. Those associated with Tsukuba have won a total of sixty-three medals at the Olympics.
The University of Tsukuba will continue to strive to keep ahead of our ever-changing modern society, developing new educational and research capacities and organizational operations that are highly-adaptable, diverse and globally-minded.
