Henri Charpentier

Henri Charpentier



Inspired by a famous 19th century French chef Henri Charpentier and his signature “Crêpe Suzette”, founder, Naoki Arita opened his first humble café in Ashiya City, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan in 1969. His baking philosophy: to create sweets that bring joy with a touch of surprise. Henri Charpentier prides itself on serving indulgent, creative and authentic pastries and desserts made of the finest quality, such as the use of original cultured butter that is painstakingly developed from raw milk originating exclusively from the Konsen area of Hokkaido. Henri Charpentier ultimately carved a name for itself as the best French patisserie brand in Japan.
