Although the background for Finnish PISA (Professional for International Student Assessment) success has been discussed from various viewpoints, Finnish education’s view of knowledge has not been reported yet. Its view makes us aware of fundamental problems in Japanese education. In this paper, Finnish education’s view of knowledge and its knowledge acquisition processes are elucidated by comparing Finnish education and Japanese education. Based on this comparison, an improvement plan for Japanse education is discussed.
