No script whatsoever given by the academy! All honest words from our students.


If you are looking for the way to take your Japanese cooking skill to the next level, you are in the right place!

Master of Japanese Cuisine Academy is the world's first online culinary academy dedicated to providing the highest level of Japanese culinary instructions through world class programmes.

Academy's chef mentors are "real master chefs" who are trained and worked at world-best Japanese restaurants.

The exceptional expertise of our master chefs enabled us to develop the ONE & ONLY culinary programmes, which are accessible and affordable for EVERYBODY as long as he/she has passion to learn!

Learn from real master chefs

Your chef mentors are the real master chefs who worked in top Japanese restaurants and own wide-range culinary expertise from sushi, sashimi, tempura, miso, soy sauce, party food, show cooking, home cooking, etc.

It is absolutely the unique opportunity for you to learn directly from the master chefs,

especially for someone who has no access to such top-level chefs and experts in your own local environment.

We don't hide master chef's secrets

In our academy, you will find the hidden secrets of master chef's real techniques that you would find it anywhere else.

To become a master chef, they spent years of training and practice to acquire real techniques of Japanese cuisine. And master chefs usually don't want to share it with other chefs because it is their top-secret.

The chef mentors of our academy, however, decided to share these secrets openly with talented chefs & food professionals across the world because we believe that it is important to educate the next generation of Japanese culinary talents world-wide.

You will have life-long access to the high quality visual-rich materials
