Information about Ai Bakery

Ai Bakery is a wonderful family-run store/cafe situated near a mountain pass in the village of Nishidani. People come from far and wide to buy freshly-baked bread, original buns and pastries, delicious cakes and more - all at a very reasonable price. Many of the treats made at Ai are unique - for example, a cheese, bacon and shiso... or a cream cheese and honey roll... or a turtle melon pan (kamelon pan).

Ai Bakery also has two absolutely delicious types of French toast - one is with vanilla ice cream and blueberry jam, the other is with matcha ice cream. Both come with a helping of sour cream.

There is nothing better than sitting on the verandah at Ai and looking at the mointains and the valley, while eating their delicious creations and drinking a cup of coffee.

Friday-Monday:  9:00am-6:00pm
