Founder, Director


Founder and Director of NPO Tokyo Community School

CEO of Global Partners Co. Ltd

Professor at Business Breakthrough University

After graduating university, Kazu was involved in human resources and education in the service industry. Through Global Partners he offers support to kindergartens, primary schools, junior high schools, and senior high schools by recruiting high quality teachers. He is also a consultant at Business Breakthrough where he teaches a program that nurtures many leaders of big companies. Through these experiences, he felt that a new option for primary educational was needed, and founded Tokyo Community School. He is involved in research, development, implementation and promotion of international curricula in order to raise children with global awareness. He leads inquiry lessons with primary school students while teaching entrepreneurship to university students. He also teaches a class on writing business plans to graduate students working on their graduate research.


This school was founded with strong influence from Fitzroy Community School in Melbourne, Australia. Philip O’Carroll, the founder, kept asking me “Education needs a philosophy. Kazu, what’s your philosophy?” I have spent a lot of time and energy to put my philosophy into words, trusting in my own potential, and pushing through with my beliefs. Thus TCS was founded. We keep believing in the child’s potential, and keep putting out a consistent message in order to build mutual trust. It is ok to fail. It is ok to make mistakes. There is no need to panic. We are here to support students as they face their challenges and keep moving forward little by little.
