Founding Story

In 2015, Ayumi Chikamoto founded Sakuraco with the vision of sharing her love for Japanese culture and snacks with people around the world. Growing up in Japan, Ayumi had always cherished the tradition of afternoon tea and wanted to bring that cultural experience to a global audience. With a dedicated team based in Tokyo, Sakuraco works closely with local Japanese snack makers, building long-term relationships and sharing their stories and passions. Through the carefully curated boxes, Sakuraco aims to inspire and delight snack lovers while promoting the work of talented small creators.

Today, Sakuraco has become a well-known name worldwide, creating a diverse tapestry of flavors that go beyond borders.

Team Bios

Ayumi Chikamoto, the visionary CEO and founder of TokyoTreat & Sakuraco, is breaking barriers in a still largely patriarchal Japan. In 2015, Ayumi embarked on her journey, sharing beloved Japanese snacks globally through Sakuraco's sister brand, TokyoTreat. However, Ayumi's affinity for the cultural tradition of pairing tea with sweets fueled her desire to explore the deep roots of Japanese snack and afternoon tea culture leading her to create Sakuraco.

Ayumi's mission goes beyond mere culinary delights; it bridges the gap between local makers and the global audience, supporting small businesses and fostering cultural exchange. 

Beyond her role as a business leader, Ayumi embraces the joys and challenges of motherhood, balancing her role as a working mother of two children. Her journey shows that, even in a society where men typically hold more power, Ayumi is proof that women can succeed as CEOs.
