Keio University is a comprehensive academic enterprise with six major campuses in Japan, along with a number of affiliated academic institutions on or near these campuses.
Keio has a proud history as Japan's very first private institution of higher learning, which dates back to the formation of a school for Dutch studies in 1858 in Edo (now Tokyo) by founder Yukichi Fukuzawa. Since the school's inception, Keio has continued to pursue Yukichi Fukuzawa's spirit of jitsugaku, which holds that one should not just acquire information from book learning, but should learn from real-life experiences in order to apply viable solutions to actual problems.
