Mayor Mike McGinn and Office of Economic Development staff recently visited Fuji Bakery in Chinatown/International District.
Fuji Bakery, located at 526 South King Street, has perfected the art of fusing the French pastry with Japanese flavor. The second of two bakeries, Fuji opened its Chinatown/International District shop in 2009. The combination of European-style baking and Japanese-style tastes allows for the creation of irresistible delights such as the green tea cookie bread or the brioche Japan.
The success of the bakery, its reviews, and its loyal fan base from around the city tell a lot about the character of Akihiro Nakamura, the owner. Whether helping raise funds for earthquake and flood relief for Japan, or helping with the revitalization efforts in the Chinatown/International District, Aki is always looking for opportunities to lend a hand. Aki was also a valuable contributor to the early planning stages of the Office of Economic Development’s Only in Seattle grant program, and has regularly participated in many other events.
