An Introduction to the Northern Hanshin Area Sandwich Shops

Sandwiches are always great for an easy meal or a light snack, whether packed for picnics or enjoyed at home. Here is a selection of unique sandwich shops in the Northern Hanshin area.


  • Kranz (Itami City)

Egg Sandwich


This bakery, loved by the locals, uses 100% domestic flour and pesticide-free organic fruits and vegetables as much as possible. A wide variety of sandwiches is available here, but the “Mixed Bento” which includes an egg sandwich is especially good. Cucumber, ham and sliced ​​cheese all strike a perfect harmony alongside the eggs in this nutritious sandwich.

  • Kuniya Shinano Sandwich Cafe (Kawanishi City)



Opened in March 2021!

At this specialty store, the bread of the handmade sandwiches is made with 100% domestic wheat and additive-free ingredients at “Bakery Cafe Shinano” in Itami City.

The signature Bangladeshi sandwich is a unique combination of seasoned and fried ground chicken in keema curry and chickpea sauces. Other than sandwiches, the creamy tofu “miso soup” in the lunch set is also popular as it complements the delicious flavor of the bread and other ingredients.

The white and blue renovated former candy store is a great place to spend a lazy afternoon.

A wide variety of sandwiches join the popular egg in the lineup including those made with fruit, cutlets, and vegetables. Since each one is freshly made after being ordered, a little patience may be necessary, depending on how crowded the shop is that day.
