Private Academies of Chinese Learning in Meiji Japan: The Decline and Transformation of the Kangaku Juku
Author: Mehl, Margaret;
The establishment of a national education system soon after the Meiji Restoration of 1868 is recognized as a significant factor in Japan’s modernization, hence research is concentrated on the state system. However, this development did not mean the disappearance of the juku, the private academies which were notable features of the Tokugawa period. This study of a little-known but significant area contributes to a better understanding of education in the Meiji period, and is relevant to the reform of Japan’s public education system today.
