Japan was in the midst of an era of profound social and cultural change after the Meiji Restoration of 1868. The WBMI, fulfilling the request of the ABCFM, assumed the responsibility of Kobe College in 1874, a year prior to its formal beginning in 1875, and, with single women missionaries, made efforts to develop women’s secondary and higher education. ”27 In the end, their effort for women’s secondary education met the Japanese societal needs where, a little more than two decades later, the governmental leaders found women’s secondary education as necessary and issued legislation in 1899 that mandated every prefecture to establish women’s high schools, this despite the fact that only a small minority of Japanese intellectuals appreciated the missionary aspiration for women’s higher education during the Meiji era.
