Our Story From Hokkaido, Japan Since 1998

In June 1998, LeTAO opened in the city of Otaru, Hokkaido Since then, we have pursued the production of delicious sweets. Among them, our best selling products are the Double Fromage and Chocolat Double cheesecakes. Using the best ingredients and modern preparation methods, LeTAO offers its customers authentic Northern Sweets that evoke a sense of Nostalgia.

Tower of Otaru 

Our fabled story began in 1998 in the beautiful canal city of Otaru, when our founder Mr. Seigou Kawagoe built a majestic tower at Otaru’s foremost tourist center and named it LeTAO or La Tour Amitie Otaru (The Amiable Tower of Otaru).

Mr. Kawagoe had the vision to make Otaru the preferred destination for Western-inspired confections in all of Japan and the world. Since then we have been crafting chic & in vogue recipes offering our customers Northern Sweets inspired to create a sense of nostalgia that will stay with them forever. Hence we steadfastly abide by the simple brand adage of Nostalgic Modern and Northern Sweets Manner. 

Our Philosophy Nostalgic Modern & Northern Sweets Manner
.
Nostalgic Modern means “to pursue exceptional taste in nostalgic sweets with modern ideas.” It expresses our attitude toward making tasty sweets that are better than what is available today.
.
Northern Sweets Manner means “to spread the mannerisms of Northern people who enjoy sweets,” but also it expresses our resolution “to become a representative of Hokkaido sweets, and hope to remind people of LeTAO when speaking of Hokkaido sweets.
