Seikei University Emblem
Seikei-en, originally a small informal school, was founded in 1906 by Haruji Nakamura. Both the School's name-Seikei,(sei ) meaning to make and (kei ) a path,and it's emblem- the peach , have their origins in the 130-volume work titled Historical Memoirs, written by Si-ma Qian in China some 2,100 years ago. Among the many people and historical events written about in this work is a man of great integrity named General Li, whom Si-ma Qian compares to a peach. Just as the sweetness of peaches attracts people, who create a path to the tree, General Li's virtue attracted people to him.
