Since the foundation of SWEET in Seattle, 1913. A pioneering spirit has been always part of our long history. 

We want to share this spirit and open a window of possibilities to create new businesses and cross-collaboration. 




SWEET WORK is a creative workspace that connects each person and each company with a new way of working. Ideas and inspiration are shared among all the members in SWEET WORK creating new concepts while empowering each other. We want to cultivate a space where everybody can create and make the world enjoyable. 


Work Space


SWEET WORK has a total space of 200 m² and is located next to the Yohashira Shrine. From the window, you can see the Metoba River and the Japanese Alps.  Our grass-like area and dining are spaces free of shoes allowing to work in a more relaxed atmosphere, where new friendships and collaboration can be born. 



SWEET Co. Bakery was founded in  Seattle, 104 years ago. The current location at Matsumoto was opened in 1923 and the current president is the fourth generation continuing the business. SWEET was the first bakery to produce Frech bread in Nagano prefecture. Pastries like curry bread or vegetable buns have been selling over 50 years thanks to their unique flavour.  During the celebrations of the 100th anniversary, a new store was opened in Azumino commemorating the long history of the bakery.
