The Kodokan Judo Institute


The world famous Kodokan Judo Institute, considered the mecca of international Judo, is located just 1 minute walk from Kasuga Station. The institute was founded in 1882 by Jigoro Kano, who himself had established Judo, deriving it from Jujitsu, an art of defending oneself and attacking others by just one's own body. From what started with just nine disciples in 1882, Judo has grown into one of the most widely practiced form of exercise and defense technique practiced all over the world.


The Kodokan Judo Institute is an eight floor building that houses the Kodokan School for Judo learners, lodgings for the students, four research laboratories (for theoretical, technical, physiological, and psychological studies of Judo), study rooms, and administrative offices. Visitors are allowed on the second floor. Located here on this floor are the Kano Memorial Hall (displaying memorial writings, letters, and other goods belonging to Professor Kano), Historical Hall (displays pictures and other paraphernalia of late masters of Judo) , Exhibition Room (exhibits documents and photographs related to the development of Judo), Library (with over 10,000 books related to Judo), and Material Stock Room. Entrance to the floor is free and is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 12 noon & from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. every day except Saturdays, Sundays, and other holidays.
