Tanaka Bread Factory

Kohei Tanaka, owner of the restaurant.
Born in Ichijoji, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto. Trained at several bakeries in Kyoto. After working as an instructor at a vocational school, he started his own business in the local Plaza Shugakuin arcade.

Shugakuin's [Tanaka Bread Factory] is a bakery that is close to your daily life.

January 22, 2020 open

Chef Tanaka studied architecture in college. When he visited France on an architecture training trip, he was impressed by the taste of French bread and enrolled in a vocational school to become a baker. After graduation, he worked at various bakeries to hone his skills, and then became an instructor at his alma mater before setting up his own bakery in 2020. He chose a former stationery store in an arcade as the site for his new store, hoping that it would be a catalyst for increasing foot traffic in the local shopping district.

“Because we eat bread every day, we want to make bread that is close to our daily lives,” says Chef Tanaka. Aiming to make bread as simple as possible, carefully selected domestic, organic, and additive-free ingredients that do not use eggs or honey. The wheat, which is the key to making bread, uses wheat from Hokkaido and Kyushu, and is carefully made over time with low-temperature fermentation for a long time.
