Gakki, the ICU Cafeteria

Gakki is the nickname of the International Christian University cafeteria. I’m talking about ICU (International Christian University) in Mitaka, Tokyo, Japan. They sell a variety of meals (both Japanese and foreign) with a la carte dishes (where you can purchase a side of rice), complete meals – or “bowls”, fruits, vegetables, and noodles. While the dishes vary from day to day, they always serve some sort of curry.

During the lunch rush, most of the dishes will sell out, so if you’re late, you might be stuck picking between curry or two other dishes. You can pay for your meal either before or after you eat; bowls are fixed with magnets that register a different price. For 500yen, you can buy a prepaid electronic meal card to swipe (or if you live in the dorms, you can use those cards).

The hours of operation for the ICU Gakki Cafeteria, like when you can order food is:

Even if you don’t order food, you can just sit in the cafeteria and do homework, meet up with friends, etc. They serve free water, hot tea, and hot water on three machines throughout the cafeteria. You will see lots of old people on campus on weekends; you don’t have to a student to eat in the cafeteria. Most meals at the ICU cafeteria cost from 200yen – 460yen.
