    The Train Bleu bakery, which attaches great importance to ensuring that ordinary bread is made as delicious as possible every day, is very popular with local residents. On weekends and public holidays, Train Bleu can get so crowded that it has to issue numbered tickets to customers. Besides basic, everyday breads, Train Bleu also sells first-class Viennoiserie (pastries); one especially popular product features seasonal fruit with cream on a delicate croissant base. The bakery closes when it is sold out for the day, so it’s best to get there early. Train Bleu is located around 20-minute drive from the Takayama Interchange of the Chubu Jukan Expressway.

    SO GOOD! We waited outside for 15 minutes to get in but worth the wait! So flaky and delicious. Everything is about 300 yen or more. Make sure to get the strawberry tart with fresh cream!

    This veteran Japanese confectionery has been making sweets with a nod to the seasons in Nakatsugawa since 1864. Their confections with domestic chestnut are especially famous, and their chestnut and mashed sweet potato kurikinton sold from autumn to winter is recommended. Carefully cooked chestnuts are added to the chunky sweet potatoes along with sugar, and then squeezed through a tea cloth. This leaves its natural pale-yellow color and the rich aroma of chestnuts that people love. Year-round sellers are also popular, including their “Ureshi-no-Kuri, made with large chestnuts prepared their own special way that maintains their fragrance and flavor.

They continue to make ""Kurikinton,"" a traditional confectionery from Nakatsugawa that uses only sugar and no preservatives or flavoring. Shichifuku's ""Nakatsugawa Sweet Chestnut Paste"" boasts chestnut grains of impressive quality. There are three to four fresh chestnuts used for one serving of Sweet Chestnut Paste, and it has a distinct prominent taste that comes from the condensed deliciousness of the chestnuts. They are sold for a limited time from September to around February of the following year. The ""Butter Dorayaki"" which uses coarse red bean paste from Hokkaido Tokachi red beans and slightly salty whipped buttercream is also popular."
