Shinshindo was founded in 1913 in Kyoto, Japan. The founder, Hitoshi Tsuzuki, is known as the first Japanese baker to visit Paris and to learn authentic French baking. Arriving there in 1924, he also traveled around France and other European nations for about 2 years. He brought back authentic European recipes and tastes to Kyoto. The European bread which Hitoshi started baking was enthusiastically welcomed by the people of Kyoto.
Since then, Shinshindo's bakeries and bakery restaurants have been serving the people of Kyoto as well as the tourists who visit Kyoto from all over the world. Our wish is to share with our patrons our own joy of life through baking the best bread in the world.
Our founder was also a Christian and set these words as our company motto:
Donne-nous aujourd ' hui notre pain quotidien (Give us today our daily bread) Mt. 6.11.
Let Shinshindo be your daily bread.
