Kanagawa, Japan — October 29, 2019 — Mikangumi Co.,Ltd (  head office  Kanagawa, Japan. CEO Mika Wada) is pleased to announce the launch of the project for developing “Online School for Dorayaki “on Kickstarter.

Mikangumi believes this project will support food professionals in the United States or in the French Republic. After developing “Online school for Dorayaki”, even if food professionals do not comes to Japan, they will be able to learn the techniques of Dorayaki and Japanese confectionery making while doing his own business in their country, and will provide support in English until he can offer sweets to customers as a professional.

The idea for an English online school was inspired by a French food-professional exhibition where many visitors asked Dorayaki artisans to come to our shop.

We would like to convey through Dorayaki that azuki beans, a traditional ingredient in Japan, are not only delicious but also have excellent nutrients for health.

A baker at a bakery that wholesales bread to famous hotels says that the taste of azuki beans is similar to chestnuts, so if he learns the technique of making sweet bean paste and makes not only Dorayaki but also pastry with an azuki paste, he will be appreciated by customers.

After reaching the goal of 500,000 yen at the Kickstarter on December 12, 2019, we will officially open a “Dorayaki Online School” on August 31, 2020.

After 31th August 2020, We plan to open the “Dorayaki Online School” for about 50,000yen.

Now, in our crowdfunding campaign, food professionals can choose a reward to receive teaching materials at a 95% discount for 5000 yen.

When I was struggling to strike the balance between raising her children and her work, Azuki rice or Azuki food helped her out to snap out of it and become healthy. Before this experience, she used to work at cosmetic industry and was aware of the importance of food for the beauty. After going through the tough experience, she started to want to contribute to the women’s beauty and make them happier through Azuki and started the business.
