Meronpan Honten (Melonpan Main Store)

The Meronpan Honten is a bakery in Kure. The bright emerald green building is the landmark of the bakery, and there are many kinds of handmade breads on display. The Meronpan Honten’s signature item is the Meronpan (Melon Bread), which gives the store its name. It looks like a chocolate fruit and is a popular bread that can only be found in Hiroshima. In addition to the main store, it is also sold at supermarkets such as Yume Town Kure and Yours ekie.

The melon buns at Meronpan Honten have a distinctive rugby ball-like shape, unlike the round melon buns that are eaten everyday in Japan. The meronpan is filled with a special custard cream that is as moist as red bean paste, and you will feel satisfied enough to fill up on just one piece. In addition to melon buns, the store also sells a variety of other breads with a simple, traditional taste, such as bean buns filled with red bean paste and sandwiches.
