Tsuji Culinary Institute & Institute of Patisserie

School Introduction

Since the founder, Shizuo Tsuji, opened the Tsuji Culinary Institute (originally known as Tsuji Culinary Institute & Institute of Patisserie) in Osaka in 1960, the school motto “Docendo discimus” has been continued to be passed down to our faculty as an educational belief, which embodies the idea of “by teaching, we learn”.

Shizuo Tsuji passionately and repeatedly stated the following: “A school is a place where faculty provide all their knowledge and skills to students through classes and where faculty themselves continually learn new things. The reason why students study is because faculty members are constantly studying. By nature, there is no end to learning in the culinary and patisserie fields, and this is why people working in those fields will spend a lifetime learning about them.”

The Institute sets itself apart from other school with its learning environment that fosters creativity, knowledge, and leadership.
