My favorite bakery in Japan-2

Boulanger Bakery 

Boulanger Bakery


This bakery, Naoki’s Boulanger has many shops in Western side of Japan. (around Osaka, Hyogo, Kyoto, Shiga …)  The reason why I love this bakery is not only their variety and the taste, but also their price:)  ALL the products in this shop is 105yen (about A$1.00).  Everything, even a roll or sandwiches!!  And I can’t believe they are all 105yen, the size of the products is not small, and the every product uses lots of ingredients such as mango, sausages, potatoes, egg etc…


Everyday the shop is full of people, especially with mums and kids.  They also have dine-in area and you can order a meal set as well.  

In the kitchen there are 3 sections; one is for baking, one is for wrapping the rolls & sandwiches and finishing the decoration of products(like glazing danishes), and another is for cooking.  Yes cooks work there as well.  They roast the chicken and deep-fry the prawn flitter.  Those food are for meal menu and sometimes used for rolls.

Why I know so much about this shop??  It’s because I used to work there before :p  I know how many denominations of bread they have!

They also make yummy drinks such as iced moca and coffee, smoothies and hot tea.  Further more, they have special sweets menu too.  Parfait and some Japanese style sweets.  They are really really popular!

    I come to your homepage from SYSOUER BAGELS.
    I’m very surprised at this journal because I loved the bakery,too.
    I said “loved”, because the bakery shop was closed last year because of the arrestment of the shop owner.

    I had been lived in Shiga before I came to Kanto region as a university student.
    I loved the bakery shop and often went there with my mother and friends for lunch. Your journal reminds me of my happy schooldays.

    I’m also very happy to hear that you went the shop recentry.
    Does that mean the restablishment of Naoki’s Boulanger?
    If so, I’ll cant help but ask my mother to send Naoki’s bread!

    Thank you

    Hi Sesame Apple:) Thank you for your comment!
    Oh my, gosh, I didn’t know that this bakery shop is closed(><) What did the owner do?? Ummm it’s shocking.
    I haven’t gone back to Japan for 1.5 years so “recent” means “1.5 years ago”:p
    So shame… if you know other nice bakery shops please let me know so that I can try when I go back to Japan next time!

    Thank you for your reply.

    The shop owner falsified the electricity charges in order to look after his own interests. Indeed, it should have been impossible to sell such nice breads at 105 yen each without the crime. However, I really love the breads not because of its low price but of its quality and tastes,and I wish I could go to the bakery shop and enjoy lunch now…

    There are many great bakery shops in Japan.
    Once I went to California and ate breads every day, but I think Japanese breads are much more delisious!
    Nice bakery shops here:
    Four de h in Osaka
    Tamaki tei in Kyoto
    Ameens Oven in Hyogo
    Dasenka in Nagoya
    Boulangerie Ken in Tokyo
    Bread &Circus in Kanagawa

    Of course there are many other nice bread shops, and I hope you can enjoy “Japanese bread tour” when you come back.

    Thank you

    P.S. I read my first comment again and realized that I made a mistake in grammar in the last sentence!
    The correct one is: I can’t help but …
    I’m sorry to make such wrong expression.

    Hi Sesame Apple 🙂

    I strongly agree with you that bread in Japan is very delish and tastier than ones in overseas. I really miss Japanese bread(><)

    I LOVE bread, and I can eat them everyday and never get bored. I wish somebody opens Japanese bakery in Perth:p

    Thank you for your bakery lists:) I definitely want to try those shops when I have chance!

    P.S. Do not worry about the mistake on grammar, I actually didn’t notice:p
