Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to introduce bakery Boulangerie Colombage in Okayama City.
Specialty Croissants at Boulangerie Colombage (Okayama City)
Ren (Mrs. Wada) is bit of a croissant-addict since she has had good ones during our trip in Spain and France before, and we’ve been searching bakeries in Okayama ever since. Aside from Le pain de Taka here is another one we recommend. It is located in Naka-ward. Not far from downtown (about 10-minute walk from Korakuen Garden). Parking is available for seven cars. We saw this Boulangerie Colombage featured on TV as a place where it serves good croissants. So why not go investigate?
As expected the croissants are popular. It was sold out already when we walked in, but another batch would be coming like in an hour so we decided to wait.
Alright, we grabbed some bread at eat-in space.
Now the croissant came in. It is crunchy (outside) and fluffy (inside). Not the same as we had one during our trip but good, I’d say.
OK, let’s call it a day.

See you around!
Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to introduce a cool bakery in Okayama City called Le pain de Taka.
Specialty Croissants at Le pain de Taka (Okayama City)
As you may notice that bread in Japan is mostly soft and fluffy which many Japanese like. But you know what? If you dare to explore a bit further, there are bakeries that serve hard bread as well. Le Pain de Taka is one of them, I would say.
Le Pain de Taka is about a 10-minute walk from JR Omoto Station (one stop from Okayama Station by Seto-ohashi/Uno line). Croissants of this bakery have been chosen as one of the best in Okayama for countless times. Aside from their hard bread lineup, they have soft and easy bread as well for kids and seniors.
I and Mrs. Wada often stop by and chill at its eat-in space.
It’s become a tradition that it serves special croissant during its anniversary week every year with special butter from France. I wouldn’t say I am a butter person but sure it smells something different.
Alright, let’s call it a day.
