About Paris OGAWAKEN

Paris OGAWAKEN originates from ancient OGAWAKEN. Ancient OGAWAKEN was established in 1905 in Shimbashi, Tokyo. At first, OGAWAKEN served simple European-style foods for lunch and dinner.

Then in mid 20th century, the former owner, who is a son of the founder, succeed ancient OGAWAKEN and invented the Original RaisinWich. And then, lots of customers have loved it as souvenirs or gifts of Tokyo Japan.

Paris OGAWAKEN was established in 1970s to take over recipes which the former owner had invented, and has made high quality and delicious sweets along with his philosophy of sweets.

His philosophy is;
 We cannot make high quality and delicious sweets only by good skills.
 What is the most important thing is to choose high quality ingredients, carefully .

So , we use only the highest ingredients for our products, even if these ingredients are expensive.

Nowadays, Paris OGAWAKEN is known as one of the most popular patisseries in Tokyo and lots of customers love our products including the Original RaisinWich as souvenirs or gifts of Tokyo Japan. Of course, foreign tourists come to our shops and buy products as souvenirs or gifts of Tokyo Japan.

We believe “Small Is Beautiful”. Of course, we would like to increase sales, but customers’ incredible satisfaction is much more important than sales, we believe.
So we pursue taste, safety and freshness of sweets rather than scale expansion. If you read below our commitments, you probably understand our philosophy.

Use only safe and the highest quality ingredients.
