Nicolas is an unusual bakery which used to be this shabby and ugly little shop with no air-conditioning and dauntingly far from the city, yet it managed to attract fans from all over the country. I have visited a few times before, thanks to friends with cars. Now it has moved from the very obscure location to an American-ish mall, still not any closer to Tokyo. And to my mild disgust, the shop is right next to a massive supermarket, which has its own bakery too…
