Smitten in Japan: where we meet Japanophiles with a fresh perspective on the lesser-known parts of Japan. This time, we feature melon pan, a reasonably-priced Japanese bread with a unique name and history. Telling us all about melon pan is Artur Galata, who may be the world's biggest melon pan fan. We discover why exactly this sweet bread is named after melons, find out how it's made, and even learn how to make your own at home. Let's take a bite into this surprisingly deep topic.
