Hattori Nutrition College

Hattori Nutrition College (服部栄養専門学校 Hattori Eiyō Senmon Gakkō?) is a prominent cooking school in Yoyogi, Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan. The current principal is Dr. Yukio Hattori, known for his role in the popular Japanese game show Iron Chef. Even before Iron Chef, Hattori Nutrition College was well known for its culinary arts programs. It is now a top choice for any aspiring culinarian in Japan, with an increasing world following as well.

Hattori Nutrition College offers certification courses and full degree programs in culinary arts and dietetics. In keeping with Japan’s forward-looking mentality, the coursework at Hattori is on the heels of the latest trends in cooking and the culinary arts. There is a particular emphasis on healthy, “body-friendly” culinary techniques.

In the Japanese TV show Iron Chef, Hattori Nutrition College provided students to assist the competing chefs in cooking duties. Dr. Hattori himself was the show's culinary commentator. Dr. Hattori also provided advice to contenders for the game show The Next Iron Chef when they were in Japan, where contenders competed to become one of the four Iron Chefs in the American spinoff on the Food Network.


The campus is about a 3-minute walk from JR Yoyogi Station and about a 5-minute walk from Shinjuku Station.
