Linde German Bakery
If you are on the lookout for a great selection of German-style bread in Tokyo (and we can tell you this type of bread is really hard to find here), look no further than Linde. From multi-grain bread, to pumpkin-seed, sunflower-seed, poppy-seed and pretzels, Linde seems to have it all.
Even though its main branch is located in the hip Western city of Kichijoji (also home to the Ghibli Museum), a small selection of Linde’s bread is carried by supermarket chains Precce and Peacock in more central locations such as Midtown Roppongi, Nakameguro or Daikanyama. If you don’t feel like getting out of the house or if you don’t live near the capital, don’t despair - Linde has a delivery service which will send their delicious breads to pretty much any location in Japan (see website for more info - Japanese only).
Insider tip: ask for the bread to be sliced so you can freeze it and put it in the toaster for exta-delicious cripsiness.
