Kyoto Sangyo University (京都産業大学 Kyoto sangyō daigaku?) is a private university in Kita-ku, Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan.

History[edit]

The university was established in 1965. The founder was an astronomer named Toshima Araki (荒木俊馬, 1897–1978), who intended to nurture students so that they could have their spiritual foundation upon the traditions of Japanese culture and contribute to the peace and happiness of the mankind,[2] for in those days many Japanese universities were under the violence of Marxist movements.[3]

The university was opened with two faculties: Economy and Science. Later it added faculties and the graduate schools (Master's courses in 1969, doctoral courses in 1971).
