~Popular Bread Store for Bread lover!~

02.09.2019

What’s the next best thing since sliced bread…? Who cares when you can have sliced bread itself! Recently Japan has really caught onto the wonders of a simple loaf of bread. There are even stores specializing in bread loaves! You might think it’s crazy that there are stores where all you can do is buy 1 or 2 types of loaves of bread–even more so when you hear that it’s 800~900 JPY per loaf. Why’s it so popular? You may even dare to ask. But if you look at these stores you can often see a long line–there must be some merit to this bread craze🍞 There are even “Shokupan” (bread loaf) specialty stores in Osaka.
 
We’ll introduce some shops that will be perfect for you to pick up a souvenir loaf to bring home with you–that is, if you don’t eat it all the same day.
 

①NOGAMI


NOGAMI is practically a synonym for high-end bakery in Osaka. It is a simple loaf with a special blend of flour, cream, butter, and honey–without using any eggs at all. You don’t need to toast it to enjoy how delicious this bread is!!

At Sakimoto you can enjoy two types of loaves:

1. “Extra Natural” bread which does not use egg or milk products. Instead, a hot water process is used to contain moisture in the bread.
2. “Extremely Fresh Milk Butter” bread has the same bass, but instead uses milk and cream products from Hokkaido as well as butter and honey produced in Japan.

You can try limited edition bread loaves on certain days of the week such as rye and walnut toasted bread. Every day you’ll find a different specialty to try~

– MUGI Bread Store – (Japanese: Syokupan Kobo Mugi)


MUGI’s most popular item is actually “An Shokupan”–that is, white bread with red beans, which uses wheat and red beans from Hokkaido. You can enjoy an extra sweetness from the red beans mixed in the bread. Add some jam for a perfect bite! No need to toast this bread–you can eat it as is. If you just want the traditional bread loaf, no worries, MUGI Bread Store sells white bread as well! 4 slices, 5 slices, or 6 slices per loaf.

④- GINZA NISHIKAWA –


Originally started in Ginza, Tokyo, GINZA NISHIKAWA is a high quality bakery to keep your eye on. The bread dough uses hard water–in fact, it is the only shop to use ionized water. Wheat, cream, butter all mixed for a slightly sweet, delicious bread. If a loaf is too much, we recommend trying out their buns instead~
