In this article, we’d like to show you the winners of “Bread of the Year 2016” (Japanese: パン・オブ・ザ・イヤー２０１６) which were announced by the editorial team “Pan Suta” (translation: “Pan Star” or “Bread Star”), the country’s biggest bread specialist community website.

■Baguette Category Gold Prize
david pain・Ibaraki Prefecture / Tsukuba-shi
“david pain” is a popular location in Tsukuba-shi, the bread battleground town. The bread made by the owner, who is from Corsica Island in France, is praised for having a delicious scent, and for the flavour of the wheat which develops in your mouth the more you chew. The bread is made with wheat from Japan and the yeast is homemade, as is the rest of the ingredients. It’s a popular shop which brings in people from other prefectures who go to buy the delicious baguettes.
7-11 Makizono, Tsukuba-shi, Ibaraki Prefecture
■Bread Loaf Category Gold Prize
Koukyuu “Sei” Kuu Pan Senmon-ten Nogami Osaka/Osaka-shi Tennōji-ku ※This shop is established in other locations too
The lines at this Kansai bread shop never end. This bread is given the name “raw” as it is served as it is instead of being toasted. Since the bread is so soft and delicate the shop does not slice it. The loafs are ample in moisture and the texture is fine all the way through. The bread will melt in your mouth as you eat it “raw”, and you will love sweet aftertaste.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Collaborates with 153-year-old Kimuraya Bakery for LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project
Last month, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu performed on the Gobi Stage at Coachella, one of the largest music festivals in the United States. Her Weekend 1 performance was streamed live worldwide and trended on Twitter in both the U.S. and Japan. After an accident during the second weekend left the singer alone on stage, many wondered if she could pull of a dazzling performance. Kyary’s joy and excitement completely transfixed the massive crowd, and the artist has drawn praise from around the world for her talent and passion.
Kyary has returned to Japan to continue her ‘Kyary Pamyu Pamyu 10th ANNIVERSARY JAPAN TOUR 2022 CANDY WAVE,’ seeing the singer performing 30 shows across Japan. On May 7, she’ll perform at LINE CUBE SHIBUYA in Tokyo.
In conjunction with the nationwide tour, the LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project was launched to energize Japan through the appeal of regional towns and cities and has been attracting major attention. To celebrate the Tokyo leg of the tour, a new Tokyo collab has been announced!
Kyary is teaming up with Kimuraya Sohonten, a bakery that has been in business for over 150 years. The brand is known for inventing the anpan sweet bun in 1874. Given how much this simple food has influenced Japanese culture, it seems appropriate to team up with Kyary–the singer has brought Japanese influence around the world and continues to inspire fans with her creativity and sweetness.
For the collaboration, fans will be able to purchase the aptly-named ‘Ninjari Anpan,’ based on Kyary’s hit song Ninjari Bang Bang released in 2013. The limited-edition set includes five different flavors of anpan and shows Kyary in her ninja attire on the box. Concertgoers can purchase these sweets at the show on May 7, and they will also be available at select Kimuraya stores and online.
A collaborative T-shirt is also on sale featuring the new logo and the singer’s 10th-anniversary logo. The shirt is available on the LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project website for two weeks only. Support Japanese businesses and pick one up while you can!
