|The main street of Jyounomonsuji in the historic district runs 350 meters long north-south. On the both sides of the street, there remain historic temples and old merchants’ residences in a row closely together. Walking towards the south end of the street, the recommended bakery shop opens in an old townhouse for rent. The owner of business carefully selects materials, cares food safety and security and sells only homemade products at the storefront. You can also enter the room, enjoy coffee and take a rest while walking around the town.|
I visited the popular bakery shop which utilized the old private house at the south end of Jyounomonsuji street in the early afternoon. The simple handmade bun which is solely made of homemade natural yeast and Japanese domestic wheat, the texture of the bun seems like French bread, and you can enjoy the unique texture with natural flavor clogged up. While you may order bread and drinks including coffee, then you can eat in the guest room with Japanese style tatami mats, facing the courtyard.
The baked flavor becomes more attractive when you eat after warming the bread with a toaster available for several minutes. It is the popular shop where many customers come back quite regularly even all the way by a car or a bicycle from a distant place and people form a line to buy them.
