What Is Melon Pan?

Melon Pan is a type of sweet bun that resembles a melon and is originated in Japan. This bread is soft on the inside, but the thin outer layer is crispy. Although it is called melon bread, it does not taste like melon, and there are various flavors such as chocolate chip, matcha, strawberry, etc. There are some melon pan stands that serve freshly baked melon pan, and some stores recently put in ice cream or whipped cream fillings.

Kagetsudo (Asakusa)

Kagetsudo is located 15 minutes away from Asakusa station. They also have another melon pan stand close by Kaminarimon gate as well, but the main store is located near the Sensoji temple. This store was established in 1945 and have been making homemade melon pan ever since, and an average of over 800 people buy melon pan at this store everyday. The melon pan is made by baking the bread in a low temperature for over 3 hours to create a soft and crispy texture. As this store is very popular among both tourists and locals, they are usually sold out by 16:00 so I would advise you to go as early as possible.

World's Second Best Freshly Baked Melon-Pan Ice Cream (Shibuya)

This store is located 8 minutes away from Shibuya station, and is close to Yoyogi park. It is a store that serves melon pan ice cream, which is made by putting in a chunk of ice cream inside the freshly baked melon pan. You can choose from vanilla, chocolate, or matcha ice cream, and you can enjoy the warm melon pan with the cold ice cream. It is recommended to drink up the melted ice cream with a straw after you finish eating the melon pan. If you do not want ice cream in your melon bread, you can order melon bread by itself as well!

Kyuei (Tsukishima)

Kyuei is located 3 minutes away from Tsukishima station. Tsukishima is famous for their monjyayaki restaurants, but this melon pan stand is also very popular and is a good dessert place after eating monjyayaki. You can have freshly baked melon pan with a crispy outer layer and soft inside. The size of the melon pan is pretty big, but it is only ¥180 and it is just too good that you will finish eating the whole thing in no time!

Melon Pan Factory (Oimachi)

Melon Pan Factory is located 1 minute away from Oimachi station, and they sell freshly baked melon bread with different flavors. I would recommend trying the original plain flavor first, but the matcha, chocolate chip, strawberry and other flavors are also worth trying too!

Lastly...

If you have never tried melon pan, go to these melon pan stands for the best melon bread! It is a must try food when visiting Tokyo!
