The other major school in Kamen Rider Fourze.

Meaning of the School Name

While Amanogawa is the Japanese name for the Milky Way. Subaruboshi in English is the heavenly body known as Pleiades or the Seven Sisters (Interestingly, in Japanese it's called the "Six Stars").

The interesting thing about Subaru 昴 is that as Boushoku 昴宿, it is one of the 28 sections that the Chinese used to split up the sky. This may sound familiar to Fushigi Yuugi fans. (Subaru is one of the Byakko celestial warriors).

A picture of the school logo:
The kanji in the middle say Subaruboshi. The six stars represent the Japanese name (versus the Seven Sisters in Western naming). The logo also sort of looks like a Chinese coin. The logo is most commonly seen on Ryuusei's school uniform. It's in his top left corner.

School Theme

Overall the school theme matches Ryuusei's Chinese/Bruce Lee/martial arts theme. The school uniform is tan brown and somewhat Chinese looking. The school name itself is a reference to the Chinese way of sectioning the sky.
