Japan Culinary Institute

Learn the REAL Japanese cuisine in JAPAN



Culinary school especially for foreigners

Lessons with English inteprete

Japanese Cuisine has become a global trend, known for the use of a wide variety of seasonal ingredients, healthy, nutritious and well-balanced diet, and for intricate culinary methods to create a world of a mixture of food, art, nature and people(combining its food, art, nature and the people). It is registered as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage since 2013 as "Washoku". However,  the chances to taste authentic Japanese cuisine abroad are still limited. 


Our mission is to bring authentic Washoku to people all over the world by realizing a high-level education on Japanese food culture as a whole. We offer all our courses in English, so that foreigners not familiar with Japanese language and culture can get the grasp of the key elements of Japanese cuisine. We incorporate learning outside the classroom as much as possible, by offering various visits and excursions, such as visiting fish market, sake brewery, rice factory, tea factory, etc...
