“Nami-Nami” was born from the image of the scenery and shape of the roof tiles that RAU’s chef patissiere saw in France and Kyoto. In France, there is a sweet called [Tuile], which means roof tile, and it has been popular for a long time. Even if you choose the same motif, if the background and the cultural background of the ingredients are different, the taste and shape will be completely different. Both are universally inherited in history as proper nouns. Inspired by this, we combined the memories of the tiled roof scenery of France and Kyoto to create a product that is easy to understand, easy to remember, and exciting to imagine from the name. I made it.

The deep wilderness of Costa Rica, the lavender fields at dusk, and the spring sunshine with flowers blooming.

In 2017, he received an offer to be a chef pastry chef from a 5-star hotel in Malaysia, and closed his own shop to spread his knowledge.
In the same year, he returned to Japan after receiving an offer for his current position, and traveled to South America and Europe with Yukiyo Takagi.
Born in Hyogo Prefecture in 1990.
Influenced by his father who is a baker, he aspired to the world of food and started his career as a chef at a French restaurant in Tokyo at the age of 17.
After gaining experience in patisserie and chocolate stores in Tokyo, in 2014 Yusuke Matsushita’s Hachette dessert specialty store [CalmeElan], which is the current chef pastry chef of RAU, opened and became a 2-star in Paris. Worked as a chef pastry chef at a

World Chocolate Masters ’22 Jury selection
Both Matsushita and Takagi will be on the “World Final Judging Committee” at the “World Chocolate Masters ’22” held in Paris, France from October 29th (Sat) to 31st (Mon), 2022. I was selected to serve as head of the jury for the Artistic Skills category. Takagi is the first Asian woman to play a major role.
-About the intention of being selected from Barry Callebaut Japan Co., Ltd.-
The concept and world view of RAU and Sachi Takagi are very unique even in the global world, and they are unique in their originality. I felt that there is beauty and fun that is not bound by form, which was the decisive factor in the selection of the judges.
In addition, it is a leading brand that every company is trying to follow, promoting genderless manufacturing, manufacturing with full of sustainability, and equal and fair manufacturing that does not choose customers, especially in the Japanese industry. I feel.
I believe that RAU has such a wonderful feeling that the future vision of chefs Matsushita and Takagi and the reality of the development they are creating are very close to each other. I will not stop.
We are truly honored to have been able to help make wonderful sweets to reach the world.
The dignified air of falling snow, the glossy form of the ceramics that reflects the warmth of your hands, the beauty of the tiled roof that you suddenly look up at, and the delicate scenes cut out by Japanese aesthetics are rooted in the climate and history of Japan. RAU aims to be a global brand that is loved by people around the world, while valuing expressions that can only be created by Japanese people.
The brand name “RAU” is taken from the ancient Japanese word “rauraushi” which means noble and beautiful. Along with the deep and soft sound of Japanese, it has nuances that are familiar to foreign customers.
“Scenery into shape”
Expressing scenery and scenes that you have seen before with sweets with your own sensibility.
You can slowly enjoy the beauty of the handmade molds and the image of the fragrance.
