Education in the birthplace of the new imperial era,“Reiwa”!

We offer education to elementary, junior and senior high school students in the birthplace of the new imperial era, “Reiwa” whose name is taken from a verse in the oldest (8th century) Japanese anthology of poems called Manyoshu, which literally means a collection of ten-thousand leaves.
The verse is a preface to thirty two poems read at a plum flower viewing party in Dazaifu.

At Linden Hall, students can:
