Bakery in Japan
Many of my guests are surprised to find a lot of bakeries in Japan. There are roughly three types of bakeries. French-French bakery, French-Japanese bakery and Japanese-Japanese bakery.
French-French bakeries such as PAUL are very popular here. They do all the classics, buttery croissant, baguette and brioche. You can find them often in the food floor of department stores.
French-Japanese bakeries are the ones owned by Japanese boulanger who have worked at French-French bakeries in France or Japan. They do the classics but they also do Japanese bread such as Anpan (buns with bean jam filling) and cream pan (buns filled with custard). You can find them in commercial area around stations and their names are often "Boulangerie (something)".
Japanese-Japanese ones are often mom-and-pop style bakeries just around the corner. They do less classics and more Japanese. If you want to try some bread available only in Japan, this is the one for you. Yakisoba pan (hotdog bun with stir fried noodles), Korokke pan (hotdog bun with potato croquet), curry pan (bread with Japanese curry filling... so many you can try ! .
