Our view on education
Our school has three principles: gratitude, cultivation of common sense and acting up to one’s principles. Knowledge, compassion and awareness are the basis of the education we provide, to train talents who will be able to contribute to the development of their region food culture.
In April 2016, our new building opened, offering our students spaces where they can practice in a comfortable environment, with the latest cookware. The classrooms for the cooking, confectionery and hygiene classes are bright new. We also opened a new seminar room where students can learn about Japanese culture in the cooking, confectionery and hygiene fields. We are fully equipped to provide a professional environment where students can learn about the world-famous Japanese food culture.
With our new school building, spreading food culture is easier than ever!
With our new seminar room dedicated to food culture, our goal is to deepen our relations with the people who are involved in the region.
