THIS delicious bakery in the outskirts of Izumikyo (map p.54, F5) is filled with the nostalgic scent of impressive baked goods, which is somewhat of a rarity here in Japan.
Their baked white bread is authentic in creation and induces homesickness when you smell it. There is also immaculate looking, and delicious tasting sweets, which are the perfect accompaniment to a mid-morning breakfast, or a late-afternoon pampering. The husband/wife team are constantly baking, so their goods are always fresh. But be warned, get in early or risk missing out.
