The only study available in English of Japan's traditional Confucian schools, this book contributes to a better understanding of education in the Meiji period and is of relevance to the reform of Japan's public education system today. 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 on education is concentrated on the state system. However, this development did not mean the disappearance of the juku, the private academies which were so much a feature of the Tokugawa period. Indeed, these played a far greater role than has been appreciated so far, hence this comprehensive study of a little-known but significant area. Education was once viewed and organized very differently from today and the modern state-controlled system we take for granted is just as much a product of historical circumstances as the juku was; it, too, must therefore be open to challenge.
