KIMURAYA (Ginza)

木村家總本店 outside
The most popular and commonly eaten sweetened bun is Anpan. It has sweet red bean paste inside and almost every bakery makes one. It was invented in 1875 by the first bakery owned by a Japanese, as a snack for the emperor who was going on a field trip to see cherry blossom's in Mito. This bakery is KIMURAYA in Ginza.

Instead of using regular yeast, owner Yasube Kimura wanted to use something else and got an idea of making yeast from malted rice, which was used for making Sake. When you smell the bun there is a sake like aroma to it.

Since the emperor was going to see cherry blossom's, Kimura added a salted cherry blossom leaf in the middle of the anpan.


木村家總本店 桜断面
It is named SAKURA ANPAN (Cherry blossom sweet red bean paste bun) because of this.

Over the years, other anpan's were created by Kimura and his family like KESHI ANPAN (Poppy seed),

and a coffee shop upstairs.

You can also find Kimuraya's Anpan at major department stores In Tokyo as well. Their Sakura Anpan is by far my favorite of all the anpan's out on the market and if you like Anko (Sweet red bean paste) and pastries, I'm sure you will enjoy Sakura Anpan as well like most of my friends who visited Japan. Kimuraya is also the partner of MAISON KAYSER, the famous boulangerie from Paris in Japan.
