Tokyo Sushi Academy

Tokyo Sushi Academy opened in 2002 as the first sushi school in Japan. Its curriculum teaches basic knowledge and techniques of Edomae-style sushi in one to two months at the shortest.

The school has attracted the industry’s attention by producing a new career path to employment, that is, a graduate of sushi school. Along with the global sushi boom, more and more foreign chefs wish to enroll, and so English courses started in 2015.

As of 2022, more than 4,400 students graduated; 400 of them are foreign chefs, who are currently working in more than 50 countries.
