Sakuraco CEO Ayumi Chikamoto

How Sakuraco Started

Our journey began in 2015 when we started sharing popular Japanese snacks across the world with our sister brand, TokyoTreat.

But because enjoying a cup of tea with traditional sweets has always been an important part of Ayumi's life, she wanted to share more of the roots of Japanese snack and afternoon tea culture.

Bridging The Gap

Since 2021, Sakuraco has become a thriving community of food lovers, makers, and artisans, dedicated to sharing the authentic taste of Japan with the rest of the world.

By bridging the gap between local makers and the rest of the world, we're able to support small business and promote cultural exchange, while also giving you a unique and authentic taste of Japan.

japanese afternoon tea culture

Japanese tea culture is a centuries-old tradition that is steeped in history and symbolism

While tea has been enjoyed in Japan for hundreds of years, its humble beginnings remain relatively unknown to many across the globe.

How it was before

Many rural workers created a snack time during the afternoon in order to recharge and fuel up for the remaining parts of the day. This was needed as typically only breakfast and dinner were eaten during these times.

Snack time was cemented as part of the modern routine when it was kept despite more people eating lunch.

How it is today

Afternoons became associated with having tea, a sweet or light snack, and a chat with friends. Today, you can experience the traditional Japanese afternoon custom of tea time at home with Sakuraco, something Ayumi still enjoys to this day. Our curated selection of premium Japanese snacks and teas allows you to taste the authentic flavors of Japan and share the experience with friends
