This bread is made with yeast that is usually used for making sake and when you smell the bun there is a different aroma to it. Inside the bread, there can be a variety of fillings, but the traditional one is red bean paste. The emperor's version is called the Sakura Anpan and has a salted cherry blossom in the middle. If you're in Ginza, definitely worth a stop to grab a bite to eat here to stay or to go. The bakery has multiple floors.
