Akabori Culinary Academy
Since the establishment of Japan's first cooking school, "Akabori Kappo Kyokojo" in 1882, we have continued to make changes to keep up with the times while continuing to carry on our 140-year history and achievements.
Food Coordinator Class
Accredited by the Japan Food Coordinators Association since 1991

It was the fifth generation principal, Chiemi Akabori, who established the position of food coordinator. In this six-month, once-a-week, classroom and practical class, students learn the fundamentals of food, which is essential for life.
In a functional kitchen studio with a homey atmosphere, students can learn the basics of various seasonal recipes including Japanese, Western, Chinese, desserts, and breads.
