Sancha is a name of an area mainly around “Sangen-Cha-Ya” station situated in Tokyo. The name, “Sancha”, is shortened name of “Sangen-Cha-Ya”. “Sangen-Cha-Ya” is driven from the fact that there used to be three tea shops standing side by side.
A bakery that I used to work is located in “Sancha”. And I used to live there just a 10-minutes walk away from the shop. I moved in there when I started working because at the time to go to work of me doesn’t have any transportation running. Staff who are in charge of kneading dough or putting it into the oven are required to head to work at 3am or before 5am. That’s why I moved in.
Ever since I moved in there, everything changed around me. A new job and a new house apart from my parents. And the job changed my life totally. I feel I could reset my life. With a hope to be able to go back to basics, I named my bakery “SANCHA”.
Moreover, I hope someday some people in Cambodia will be interested in Japanese bread. And I will be glad if some of them will wish to come to see Sancha in Japan.
