It started out as an online business during Covid and this is the brand’s first physical concept.

Chef Makoto Arami, a third-generation descendant in a family business dating back to 1935, grew up deeply involved in the tradition of making desserts. His grandfather was an expert in wagashi, traditional Japanese sweets, while his father expanded the business to include yogashi, which are Western-style desserts made with Japanese ingredients and delivered with a high level of creativity.

Chef Makoto went on to train at Tsuji Culinary Institute in Tokyo, and he has also worked at various establishments including Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City, Beige Alain Ducasse in Ginza, Beni in Singapore as well as Pastry Sous Chef at Marina Bay Sands.
