    Melon pan or melon bread isn’t what you’re thinking. It has no melon taste nor is it made from melons. Its unique name comes from the “lumps” of the bread that resemble the ones found on melons. It’s soft, it’s warm, and it’s got an interesting shape. Any bread lover has to give one of these a try. To give your taste buds an even better experience, try a melon pan filled with ice cream!

    The melon pan ice cream sandwich from World’s Second Best Melon Pan Ice Cream is the perfect treat. Right out of the oven, a warm melon pan is split into two and filled with cold, creamy vanilla and matcha ice cream for only 400 yen. They have a few other ice cream flavors which also cost 400 yen. For those who just want to try a plain melon pan, they sell them for 200 yen.

    4. Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

    Krispy Kreme might not be a Japanese company but that doesn’t mean they don’t mix it up in their stores. Checking out a Krispy Kreme in Japan is a must for doughnut and Krispy Kreme lovers.
