Image of Japan Culinary Institute, Shizuoka Prefecture Japan Culinary Institute, Shizuoka Prefecture:
Japan Culinary Institute is located in Atami, Shizuoka prefecture in Japan (a seaside city just one hour southwest of Tokyo in a Shinkansen bullet train). At JCI, we believe that when learning cuisine, the environment is very important.

Using fresh ingredients, vegetables that grew taking sunlight, seafood from the port every morning, fresh water filtered through the mountains, makes all the difference. Atami offers an ideal place to learn Japanese cuisine as it was born and cultivated, connection to the nature.

Atami is also known for high quality hot spring. As it has flourished as a city for travelers since ancient time, it keeps authentic Japanese culture in a relaxed environment that cannot be found anymore in metropolitan cities like Tokyo or Osaka. In just an hour in a Shinkansen bullet train from Tokyo, it offers a whole different experience from learning cooking in metropolitan cities.

Location and Facilities:


Photo of Washoku Cooking School in Japan / Shizuoka Atami is a city rich in nature and culture. Atami hot spring came to be famous as the first Edo shogunate general Ieyasu Tokugawa visited there for hot spring treatment, and then made the hot spring water delivered to Edo (Tokyo). Atami was visited by numerous cultured people, as well as imperial families and important politicians and influential people, including prominent novelists, who built their summer houses.

As Atami is surrounded by rich nature - mountains including Mr.Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan, and the ocean, mild climate that nurtures various vegetables and fruits - it flourished as holiday destination, with many vacation villas and tourist spots, nurturing its own regional products.

There are many restaurants, not only the main streets but also in small back streets. Each restaurant has its own characteristics. You can find Sushi, Japanese cuisine, Chinese cuisine, Ramen shops, Italian restaurants, etc.

The present building was completed in 1954, and was known to be the best Geigi (Art) association in the area. Each weekend, they perform “Yumemachi Dance” at the venue.  During weekdays, you may be able to see them practicing.
