The first introduction of Rudolf Steiner's body of thought in Japan was given by Koyasu Michiko in 1975 when she wrote a book about a Waldorf school in Munich, Germany. The first Waldorf school in Japan was built in Tokyo in 1987; currently the Waldorf movement is being represented by seven facilities all over the country. This master thesis evaluates how it is possible to shift an idea that was invented in the late 19th/early 20th century Europe and to what extent these thoughts have become applicable in modern Japan.
