"It's a watermelon, but it tastes like strawberry." Watermelon bread, a local hot topic!
Bakery & Café Kikuchiya

First batter up in the photogenic bread line up is the extremely impressive sight, Watermelon Bread.
It's a loaf of bread, so before slicing, it's a green square-like shape.
When you slice into the bread, the brilliant red appears. This is a new bread full of entertainment.
What's even more impressive is the amazing strawberry flavor.
In all truth, this could be called strawberry bread.
The seeds are made from chocolate chips, and the outer green portion is colored with shaved ice syrup. It has a low sugar content, so it won't brown easily when baked.
It's so popular that it's sold in a limited number of one loaf per customer.
I recommend you shop early on before it is sold out!
Hikakin, the Japanese You Tuber who is popular globally, gives this 100 points.

Now for the leading role on the table!

Slice it into triangles for a greater watermelon effect!

There is a yellow version as well!

New York style with a bagel in one hand! Classy!
Bagel U

Cute, tasty, easy-to-transport bagels are perfect for picnics and outings!
To change the Japanese impression that authentic, New York style bagels are difficult to create, the Bagel U chef works daily and grows closer to the authentic flavor.
It looks chewy, with a doughy bite and a moist texture. By all means, please experience the New York style bagel!
Of course you must enjoy the the Japanese flavors like the "Sendai Zunda Bagel" or the "Cherry Blossom Sticky Rice Cake White Chocolate Bagel". (Some are seasonal.)

There are so many flavors, I can't choose!

They're so photogenic just lined up there!

Stack the bagels vertically and they become art worthy.
