Kogakkan University
   'Imperial Learning Hall University'. One of the two large Shinto universities responsible for the training of priests, (the other is Kokugakuin). It was established in 1882 under the name of Jingu Kogakukan (or Kogakkan) near the Ise jingu as part of the attempt to develop a coherent Shinto doctrine following the divisive 'pantheon dispute' (saijin ronso) of the 1870's. It was set up to educate the sons of shrine priests and later moved to Uji Yamada where it became a Shinto training institute of the Ministry of Home Affairs until the end of the war. Those trained as Shinto priests up to 1945 were automatically qualified to be schoolteachers. As a government-funded religious institution it was closed down by the occupation administration in 1945. It reopened in 1952 as a private university after a funding campaign heavily supported by government figures including the prime minister and was rebuilt in 1962 on its original site at Ise.
