Exhibition concept

Create History to Define the Future

Our history is the very struggle
Of modern Japan itself—

At the Fukuzawa Yukichi Memorial Keio History Museum we will trace the life of Fukuzawa Yukichi and the history of Keio University through an abundance of artefacts, and words handed down from the past.

Follow the unbroken pen-stroke through the museum, tracing the adoption of Western learning at Keio and in Japan. This continuous line ties together the successive developments of an empirical and rational approach to scholarship imported to Japan.

The content on display here is not the internal matters of a single private school, but recounts the history of modern Japan’s struggles. Moreover, this is not a history full of triumphs, but one replete with setbacks. The history of Fukuzawa Yukichi and Keio University paints a vivid, multifaceted perspective of Japanese modernity.

Now, let us embark on our journey through history and into the future.
