Found in 1966, Hiko Mizuno College of Jewelry is the only one Jewelry school in Tokyo authorized by the school education law. Hiko Mizuno has taken a form of a non-profitable organization, which is officially authorized by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government under the Law of Education. This authorization has enabled the school to receive a permit from the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare to provide licensed careers advice and VISA (2-year) arrangement for the overseas students.
Hiko Mizuno not only enjoys constant international visitors in jewelry and art all year around, but also invites overseas jewelry artists every year to hold summer workshops and slide lectures.
