Komatsu Bakery


Komatsu Bakery is located close to Matsumoto Castle. Originally a grain shop during the Meiji Period, the bakery was later established in 1922. Komatsu Bakery was the first bakery in Matsumoto and the owner is very proud of its history and the current owner is the fourth in the bakery’s history.

Komatsu Bakery has the feel of a classic Japanese-style bakery and bakes about 130 varieties of breads, depending on the time and day you go. The owner, Mr. Komatsu, likes to create new kinds and styles of breads and give them unique names. The most popular breads are the Miso-pan (miso bread), an original recipe, and Gyunyu-pan (milk bread), and they also bake 13 kinds of loaf breads.

The owner says, “Making bread is difficult and interesting because the bread is alive. Making bread depends on the fermentation time and baking conditions, so through the bread, the owner demonstrates his long experience.” The third owner passed on his secrets for bringing out the natural flavors of the flour.
