Busshozan Tenmaya Sando: Superb Sandwiches in an Edo-Period Townscape (Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture)

Found among city streets built in the Edo period (1603~1867), sandwich shop Busshozan Tenmaya Sando opened in 2014. An important historical area that has been designated to be maintained and developed, the particular spot in which the shop is located goes by the name of Busshozan Gaido.

Tenmaya Sando – A Refurbished Tangible Cultural Property

One of Busshozan’s oldest buildings, the shop was built more than 100-years ago. It used to be a dressmaker’s and sold both Japanese and western clothes at different times. One part of the building was turned into a sandwich shop by a couple passionate about bread. Pretty interesting background..!

Although many regulars use the easily recognizable building as a landmark, this well-designed sign indicates the shop entrance.

Simple and refined, the interior is quiet and allows customers to spend their time as they wish.

These large windows lead out to the renovated historical garden. The green outdoors clashing with the white walls makes for an interesting and pleasant contrast. For a few lucky customers, these particular tables offer a feast for both mouth and eye!

The No.1 Most Popular Sandwich!

The most popular item on the menu is without doubt the A Sandwich – the Burger Sandwich. It consists of two pieces of bread with delicious filling that changes on a monthly basis. As such, it has customers coming back every month to try the new creations.

This month’s A Sandwich is ham with lots of fresh vegetables sandwiched between two pumpkin buns. Basil-flavored mashed potato give it an agreeable accent… Making the dough fluffy and sweet, pumpkin is grated and mixed in. It’s easy to see why this is the most popular sandwich in the shop!

The Limited-Edition Order-Only Sandwich!
