The Attraction of Bread in Japan
The charm of Japanese bread is that you can certainly feel the history and food culture of Japan in a small loaf of bread. From a global perspective, it’s safe to say that Japan’s bread culture has a short history.
However, bread imported from overseas, like Japanese tea and ramen, has evolved uniquely to suit the temperament, tastes, and climate of the Japanese people. As those who have made bread before may know, bread is a delicate entity in which even slight changes in the environment can affect the finished product.
I believe that because of the efforts and ingenuity of many artisans in adapting to the climate, the bread diet has been accepted in Japan, where rice is the staple food, and many uniquely Japanese bread have been developed.
A message from Maki Nakamura
I would like to write articles that will help people learn about and become interested in Japan’s unique bread.
Thankfully, Japan is now a popular tourist destination. The purpose of sightseeing that visitors talk about is mainly cultural experiences and food. Among them, Japanese food such as sushi and yakitori are at the top of the list, and bread is barely mentioned there.
I will convey the charm of Japanese bread with its story and history so that people will be inspired to try bread at Japanese bakeries.
