For those who just can't stop loving Japanese cuisine, and wish to learn how to prepare those delicious foods like in their favorite local Japanese restaurant, or even better!

Atami is an ideal place to learn cooking at the same time enjoying living in a beautiful country rich in history and culture. Cooking is fun and exciting, and it is all about caring for others and enjoying life with those who you care for. It is sharing the appreciation for the nature and the change of season, which is the base for Japanese cuisine.

Therefore, our courses for amateur focus on enjoyable cooking, using seasonal ingredients, while learning about Japanese culture, and exploring various aspects of Japan. You will learn what ordinary Japanese people are eating daily.

If you have an image that Japanese cuisine is something old-fashioned or found only in expensive restaurants, it will be an opportunity to change the image of Japanese cuisine completely, as Japanese cuisine are at its heart simple and open for assimilating various influences too, without changing its core values.

Japanese Culture:

Therefore, we emphasize the importance and encourage all students to learn and experience Japanese culture first hand.
