† Where did you find this cute creation?
I took this photo on a trip to Japan nearly 5 years ago. We stopped in a small town called Uwajima (it’s on Shikoku) at a bakery called “Wee Willie Winkie” near the train station, and I couldn’t resist this cute bun. It’s in the shape of “Anpanman”, a popular Japanese cartoon character. 
† What is it made of? How does it taste? 
Anpan is a bread roll filled with sweet red bean paste (“an”) – it doesn’t have a strong taste so it’s hard to describe, it’s a very common food in Japan. This bun was almost too cute to eat, but I was hungry… 
† Any other comments or tips? 
Good luck with your book.
best wishes
