Yushima Seido

Travel Guide - Yushima Seido


Yushima Seido dates back to a private school started by Hayashi Razan at Ueno Shinobugaoka in 1630.
Then the school was moved to Yushima by the 5th Tokugawa Shogun Tsunayoshi in 1690, and a school called "Shoheizaka gakumonjo" was opened in the premises in 1797.
It was a Cheng-Zhu school run by the Tokugawa Shogunate.
The Yushima Seido's existing Taisei-den Hall (Temple of Confucius), having characteristics of Chinese-style architecture, was reconstructed in 1935 after once destroyed by the Great Kanto earthquake in 1923.
