About Textbooks Compiled by the Hawai Chuo Gakuin/Japanese Central Institute of Hawaii

April 1896: Takie Okumura (奥村多喜衛) of Makiki Christian Church opened the Honolulu Nihonjin Shogakko (ホノルル日本人小学校) (later the Hawai Chuo Gakuin in 1899) in Honolulu. Okumura requested the Ministry of Education in Japan to send textbooks and school materials.

In 1898, Deputy Minister Komura Jutaro (小村寿太郎) granted his request. There are several examples in the collections to represent textbooks compiled by the Hawai Chuo Gakuin. The school was quite successful until December 7, 1947.
