Le Dimanche Boulangerie (link in Japanese) is a must stop along the boutique stores and eateries along Tor Road in Kobe. This wonderful French bakery has a wide variety of traditional French savory and sweet pastries as well as Japanese style breads. There is a cafe on the second floor which is a peaceful place to enjoy the pastries from the bakery downstairs. Le Dimanche Boulangerie is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. By the way, they have two more stores at Kitasenju station in northern Tokyo and in front of Kawasaki station in Kanagawa Prefecture.

I first visited Japan in 2001 and since then have returned many times. With the efficiency and reliability of its transportation, the graciousness of the people, and the dedication to quality in food and service, Japan has been my standard for modern travel convenience. Every return has reminded me of the remarkable depth and diversity of the country with no two trips being alike, despite retracing steps through familiar neighborhoods. The constant dynamism of the urban centers combined with the emphasis on tradition, sense of aesthetics, and attention to detail make it one of the most exciting places to visit and an inexhaustible land for novel experiences, modern and ancient.
