(1)Toraya Bakery
A bakery store that has an easy-to-find, light blue signboard with the store name TORAYA BAKERY written in red. The bakery is famous for its Baguette sandwiches (ham & cheese, uncured ham, etc). They also sell many other types of breads. My recommendation would be the red bean paste croissant. The bread comes in small portions, so I tend to eat too many at a time.
