551 Horai | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Shin-Osaka Station 

[551 Horai]

Made by hand one by one, ever since the shop's establishment

The 551 Horai pork bun, long-loved as the taste of Osaka, is so popular that approx.140,000 buns are sold a day on average. Each pork bun is made by hand using dough produced at the main factory and delivered to each branch within a limited area when it has risen to the perfect extent. These voluminous pork buns have plenty of juicy ingredients inside the bouncy bread. The reassuring weight of it in your hand never fails to lift the spirits. The chilled buns will keep for many days in the refrigerator, and make the ideal souvenir.
