SPROUT, Kutchan, Yoshitaka and Yukiko Toge

By 27th January 2012 August 27th, 2013 Uncategorized

YOSHITAKA and Yukiko Toge left Chiba nine years ago to move to the Niseko area. When they first arrived, Yoshitaka worked as a rafting guide in the summers, and as ski patrol for Annupuri during the winters. Yukiko worked year-round at a café in Hirafu.

In 2009 they decided it was time to begin their own business, and so they opened Sprout Outdoor Espresso. Sprout is a cosy intimate café that serves top-quality espresso roasted locally in Hokkaido. The Toges opened their café in hope of creating a welcoming space that brings outdoor people together. 

It is located half a block from the Kutchan JR station on Ekimae Street.
