 Greetings from the President

  MCSC was established in Taura, Yokosuka, Kanagawa in 1954, transferred to Kodaira, Tokyo in 1956, to Ichigaya, Tokyo in 1959, and finally to Meguro, Tokyo in 1994. MCSC enjoyed the 60th anniversary in 2014. This year marks the 65th anniversary of the establishment.

  We have been conducting educational and research activities as a think-tank and the highest educational institution of JMSDF under the philosophy of Vice Admiral NAKAYAMA Sadayoshi, the First President of MCSC, which are “Academic Freedom”, “Self Enlightenment” and “Logical Thinking in a flexible and critical manner”.

  As we now face a new era of Reiwa, MCSC will deepen “Integration of Knowledge and Wisdom” and establish school reformation as successive presidents strived for, and assist JMSDF, which is transforming into an organization that could adapt to the changing environment. We are ready to take on new challenges with a positive attitude. I would like to conclude my greetings, wishing for your continuous support and cooperation.
