“What does Tokyo
Sushi Academy offer me?”

Our instructors are seasoned professionals in sushi and education. Not only have they worked as sushi chefs in top-class restaurants in Japan and overseas, they have also taught more than 3,500 students in total.
Our instructors adjust their lessons to individual student needs and provide intensive lessons with easy-to-follow instructions, enabling students to reach the level required for graduation in a short two-month timeframe. Over the short but intensive eight-week course, our students and instructors build trust with each other.

Gain insight into the soul of Japan and spread joy through sushi.

In the past few years, the number of Japanese restaurants has doubled, and should continue increasing in the future. Tokyo Sushi Academy (TSA) began offering courses in 2002. Our aim is to train sushi chefs and others committed to promoting Japanese food culture, and to spread joy by increasing the global availability and value of Japanese cuisine. We hope that, after completing our 200-hour intensive course, our graduates will contribute to the development of food culture around the world.

The course covers everything you need to know, from classics such as sushi and tempura to lesser-known dishes such as yakitori to chawan mushi.
