In the bread section of the grocery store today, I came upon... THIS... NOVELTY!!!!
Are we perhaps seeing an end of the six-slice-maximum reign of terror in the bread aisles of the country??
Actually, this loaf is not sliced at all. But it's large enough for much more than the usual six. It and a few others like it were selling for 498 yen each, or about 5 bucks.
