This is a cute letter set of Japanese bread called "anpan" from Furukawa Paper's "bread series".  The set comes with 8 writing paper and 4 envelopes of high quality Japanese mino washi paper.

Anpan is a Japanese very popular sweet roll most commonly filled with red bean paste or other fillings such as white beans, green beans, sesame and chestnuts etc.  Anpan was first made in 1875 by a samurai Yasubei Kimura, who lost his job due to the dissolution of the samurai as a social class.  You can learn a little about anpan and how it is made in this interesting video we found HERE by Puratos Group.  If you are visiting Tokyo, you may want to visit his very first bakery, Kimuraya Bakery in Giza Tokyo and try the delicious anpan!
