On October 24, 2017, Dr. Takanori Kobayashi, our beloved professor and president, went to be with the Lord after suffering a heart attack while on a business trip to the United States. He was 61 years old. A private family funeral followed by cremation was held in his hometown in Nagano Prefecture.
Tokyo Christian University and the East Kanto Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in Japan will hold a funeral service as follows:
Date and Time: Saturday, November 25, 13:00 to 14:30 (campus gate opens at 11:30)
Address: 3-301-5, Uchino, Inzai City, Chiba Prefecture
Chairperson of the Funeral Committee: Rev. Kaoru Hirose, Chairperson, TCU Board of Directors
Due to the limited number of parking spaces, we advise guests to use public transportation. TCU shuttle busses will run between Chiba New Town Chuo Station and TCU on November 25th before and after the funeral service.
We will not be accepting cash offerings, flowers, or wreaths at the funeral. We appreciate your understanding.
