Bonjorno senoritas! It’s Mr. Wada back on duty oi! I would like to introduce bakery Hitotsu Kobo in Ushimado.

Compact Bakery Hitotsu Kobo in Ushimado (Setouchi City)

Hitotsu Kobo (ひとつ工房) is quite close to Cafe EASE where I’ve previously featured. The store is about 5 minutes from the main road so accessible by car or bike, I’d say.

 

It looks quite compact, doesn’t it? Since it is a family business, selection is not as big as big bakeries but you could feel the welcoming atmosphere.

 

Hey it’s got such nice seats. Why don’t we eat in here? Nice garden views add up extra relaxation.

 

Alright. Let’s call it a day.

Specialty Croissants at Le pain de Taka (Okayama City)

le pain du taka

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.

 

Anniversary Croissants

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.
