In yesterday's post, I mentioned that I had bought some baked items from Sugi-no-ki. This shop is super teeny.

I felt a bit pressured knowing that the woman standing by the register was watching what I was putting on my tray.

I ended up purchasing their waguri (Japanese chestnut) muffin, waguri brioche and a wheat roll.

We had these for breakfast today.

Everything was delicious...the brioche was a bit disappointing with only a few pieces of chestnut in it, the roll was moist and delicious with a little butter, the muffin was my favorite, with a lot of chestnut in it.

I noticed on social media that this shop also sells stollen, so I'll be back!

We are expecting some more rain this weekend, which is predicted to hamper recovery and clean up in the areas affected by the recent typhoon.

Hope the weather is better where you are!

This reminds me of a segment I watched on NHK about Kyoto breads. Everything looks so good!
