Bread Memo Pad - Bread with Raisins

This is a cute memo pad of 食パン (shoku pan) with raisins from Furukawa Paper's "bread series". High quality Japanese Mino washi paper is used.  It comes with 100 sheets of shoku pan design memo pad, and the packaging is like how bakery package a bread.

In Japan, plain bread is called 食パン which literally means "food bread" in Japanese.  Why is it called "food bread" when it is obvious that the bread is for eating?  Well, there are several different stories behind its name, but one of the famous one is that when the bread was first introduced in Japan in the 19th century, the culture of eating toast did not spread quickly whereas the culture of using bread/toast as an eraser for sketching did not take long to spread.  So when people saw a toast at a bakery, people did not buy them for eating because they thought it was an eraser.  So in order to distinguish a toast from a bread used as an eraser, the bakery started to call it "shoku pan" meaning food bread so that people know it was eatable!
