    Japan’s Kinki University to change pervy name
    The Sun Daily | 2014may21
    But the university’s dean Hitoshi Shiozaki told reporters this week that he is tired of the giggles he gets abroad when he tells people where he works.
    “The word ‘kinky’ also means perverted,” he said. “We have no other choice than changing the English name because we are serious about pursuing a more international school culture.”
    Kinki University will become Kindai University — a contraction of “Kinki” and “Daigaku” (university), the school said on Wednesday, but the change will only take effect in 2016 when a new international studies faculty is opened.
    Managers hope the move will embolden students to apply for exchanges, safe in the knowledge that they won’t be laughed at just for the name of their university.

    This is why the French plural form of “penis” is found in the word “Japanese”. This may also be why Japan even looks like a penis. Amiright?

    What’s it like when Sexy Zone play a gig in the Kinki Region? A lot of applied sociology, perhaps?

    The question from a marketing standpoint is why make a big deal about a salacious misreading of the current name in the announcement of the change? Why not just make the changes and let the subject rest? Why go on and on about globalizing the university, then to the extreme of explaining the possible misunderstanding with the word “KINKY” in all capital letters in your press release?

    It all seems a bit weird and discomfiting — until one learns a vital piece of information: the chairman of the board of trustees of Kinki University is Seko Hiroshige.

    “That Seko Hiroshige?”

    seko kinki
    Yes, that Seko Hiroshige (see right), the Diet and the Liberal Democratic Party’s avatar of the inappropriate and overreaching.

    As it turns out, Kinki University is a Seko family fiefdom. It was founded by Seko Ko’ichi, Hiroshige’s grandfather, who like Hiroshige, was an LDP Diet member. The position of chairman of Kinki U. has been handed down through the family tree, Hiroshige having become the fourth Seko to be the university’s top dog upon the 2011 death of his father Hiroaki.

    So that which at first seems strained, peculiar and silly, turns out, when one learns the backstory, to be a natural course of events…because this is precisely the kind of change Seko Hiroshige can believe in.

    Japan’s Kinki University decides to change its naughty-sounding name
    left_long quotebar 24x260px
    Traditionalists, long-time residents of the Kinki region, and linguists may be less than thrilled at the new name, as the new moniker is essentially an abbreviated version of ‘Kinki University University.’ Still, if the choice is between sounding perverted or redundant, we can understand settling for the latter, and if nothing else, the school is no longer in the running for the title of “Japan’s most suggestively named school.”

    Gee, I feel that the names Kinky University and TIT are kind of cute.
    Now “NIT” (Nagoya Institute of Technology), that sounds kimoi/yucky, don’t you think?

  8. Ivana Tinkle Says:

    Renaming it “KINDAI University”?
    Hmmm.
    That name is pronounced Kin as in ‘family’ and Dai as in ‘die.’
    ‘Family Die’ is not a good choice–Seems like a poor decision for the University.
