It was a little bit too moist. Melon pan should be crispy.

Tasty
25-04-2021
A sweet bread with a sticky glazed outer surface. Tastes somewhat like the inside of a doughnut - would be best eaten paired with something else, perhaps like a custard

Very tasty and nostalgic
12-04-2021
Delicious, fresh and tasty! I was a bit worried these would age during delivery and be a bit stale, but they weren't in the slightest! Nice and fresh!

Very yummy
29-03-2021
I've never had it before but always wanted to try it. Basicly tastes like a dense *** donut with no *** inside and no sugar ontop basocly just slightly sweet dense bread. No melon flavor
23-03-2021
Amazing and yummy! Not quite as good as buying them fresh from the bakery and eating on the hoof walking round Kyoto, but the next best thing.

Lovely soft bun with crisp crust, not too sweet, would recommend.
02-03-2021
Nothing special
09-02-2021
Very good and authentic compared to what I had in Japan. Only thing I would say is that it is very expensive for what it is.
06-02-2021
I expected it to be sweet, but it was really sweet! Absolutely delicious.

Classic tasty sweetness!
27-08-2015
good quality though I honestly don't have anything to compare it to. Might buy more baked goods in bulk one day to share with friends and family. But it would have to have one day delivery probably.
