About Us

Founder of Gakken

Hideto Furuoka

Why we started "Gakken Classroom".

The founder, Hideto Furuoka sums up his vision and values as follows;
Considering Gakken is originally a book publisher, our role virtually finishes when our books are sold. Therefore, we never know how children read and use the books. However, in the classroom, things don’t end when you publish and sell a book. That’s just the start. “Gakken Classroom” serves as a community where “teacher-child”, “child-child”, “teacher-mother” bonds build through learning.

Furuoka's passion for education never dies and all of us have shared his values over the years.
