Nomura Center for Lifelong Integrated Education, established by the late Mrs. Yoshiko Nomura, is an organization leading voluntary activities in education.
Being motivated by the unfortunate problems of the juveniles in early 1960s - the period of high economic growth in Japan, Founding Director General Mrs. Yoshiko Nomura started comprehensive reexamination of education and constructed "the Principles of Nomura Lifelong Integrated Education" based on the Oriental view of nature.
After 50 some years of history, Nomura Center has developed itself into the nation-wide organization with branches and chapters throughout Japan as well as the overseas branches in Germany, India, Egypt, Palestine and Bulgaria.
Since the demise of Mrs. Yoshiko Nomura in November 2003, Nomura Center has continued the promotion of learning of the Principles of Nomura Lifelong Integrated Education and its implementation under the leadership of Mrs. Yumiko Kaneko.
Rectifying the objective of education and focusing the restoration of humanity at the basis of education, Nomura Center continues to promote mutual education based on the principles of self-education. By doing so, we will continue on leading activities encompassing home, society and international community in coordination with family, school and society for the future of our children.
In 1981, Nomura Center was authorized as the incorporated foundation by the Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan, and in 2013 as the public interest incorporated foundation by the Cabinet Office of the Government of Japan.
