The bun called anpan

This time is not an introduction of tourist spot, but an introduction of Japanese food.
The Japanese food I introduce today are the buns called anpan that I bought at convenience stores in Nara. What is in the bun is sweet bean paste.
[ Anpan ]
We have anpan in one of Japanese buns.
It was invented in a baker called Kimuraya in Tokyo in 1874.
An anpan was presented to the Emperor on April 4, 1875.
The Emperor liked anpan and said to continue to bring it.
To celebrate this day, April 4th is said to National Anpan Day in Japan.
After that the bun had become popular, and it began to make not only Kimuraya but also other bakeries.
[ My lunch ]
I like anpan.
However, because there is no shop of Kimuraya in Nara we can not buy kimuraya's anpan.
So I eat anpan that are not made by Kimura.
(These days, Internet mail order has developed, so we can buy it on the Internet.)
This time I bought three anpan at convenience stores on Sanjo Street.
This is an anpan that was sold at a convenience store Family Mart.
