Graduate of the Agricultural College of Tohoku Imperial
University, religious philosopher
Ohsaka was influenced by Kanzo Uchimura when he was at
Niigata Junior High School and pledged to live his life
as a Christian. He graduated from the Agricultural College
of Tohoku Imperial University in 1908. After three years of
missionary work in Tokyo, he studied theology in the United
States. Ohsaka continued his missionary work in Niigata’s
Nagaoka City after returning home, and Dr. Kingo Miyabe
invited him to Sapporo in 1939, after which he advocated
non-church Christianity.
The Ohsaka collection mainly consists of publications on
Christianity, philosophy and literature.
