Obituary] Mr. Teiichiro Yoneda, Advisor of Kyoto Computer Gakuin passed away.

Dr. Teiichiro Yoneda, who was an advisor of Kyoto Computer Gakuin and was still teaching "Special Lectures" even though he was over 100 years old, passed away on June 7.He was 106 years old.We sincerely pray for the repose of the soul of the deceased and respectfully announce the following.The funeral service was conducted by the family.

Dr. Teiichiro Yoneda has devoted himself to education since graduating from Kyoto Imperial University.He has taught at various schools in Kyoto City, and has served as principal of Kyoto City Horikawa High School, director of the guidance department of the Kyoto City Board of Education, and professor at Kyoto Gakuen University.In April 1987, he joined Kyoto Computer Gakuin and served as the principal of the Rakuhoku School and the Kyoto Ekimae School.After that, he was appointed as an advisor and gave special lectures every year during the three major festivals in Kyoto: Aoi Matsuri, Gion Matsuri and Jidai Matsuri.

It was in 2001 that he started to write an article titled "Shoyoyo (Walking in the Ancient Capital)" for "Accumulation," which Kyoto Computer Gakuin publishes once a year for its alumni, students and other related people.It was one of the most popular series in Accumulation, with contributions in every issue.

Prof. Yoneda put down his pen with the last issue of Accumulation No. 18 in 2009, because he had "completed his walk around the school building".He has written and published a total of nine articles up to that point.To celebrate Yoneda's 100th birthday, "Shoyoyo of the Ancient Capital" was compiled and published in one volume.It is a book in which Yoneda's life in Kyoto, which he loved so much, is engraved, and it is still used as a textbook for students.On December 11, 2009, he celebrated his 100th birthday with a "Celebration Party" at KCG Kyoto Ekimae School, which was attended by many students and faculty members.

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Yoneda for his great contribution to the development of the KCG Group as a lifelong educator, and we pray for his peaceful passing.
