Bukkyo University


Since its founding in 1868, Bukkyo University has been a learner-centered research university providing high quality educational experiences while pursuing new knowledge through teaching, research, and interdisciplinary and engaged scholarship.

We have given students the knowledge, insight, skills, and experience to become leaders for the common good. Based upon the teachings of Gotama-Buddha and Reverend Honen, the founder of the Pure Land Buddhism, Bukkyo University is decidedly global in outlook and diverse in perspectives, which are now represented by the students (both domestic and foreign), faculty, and staff.

Bukkyo University draws its basic inspiration from the teachings of Buddha and Reverend Honen as the source of wisdom. As a comprehensive university grounded in the core values of Reverend Honen, the founder of the Pure Land Buddhism, we educate students to think critically, act positively, communicate effectively, succeed professionally and lead ethically.
