Otsuma Women’s University

Tokyo (Chiyoda), Japan (2014)

Founded in 1949, Otsuma Women’s University is located near the Imperial Palace (Kokyo) in the heart of Tokyo.
It began as a sewing school in 1908. From this grew the Otsuma Girls’ High School (1935) and the Otsuma Women’s Vocational School (1942).Like many other women’s universities in Japan, Otsuma has faced the challenge of a rapidly changing job market for women. In the 70s and 80s the demand was for junior college graduates and for most of this period the Otsuma Junior College English Dearment was at the top of the national rankings. Otsuma Women’s University has chosen Halton solutions for the ventilation of their cooking lab.Otsuma Women’s University
