ミスタードーナツ Mister Donut

Once an American icon, until being purchased by Dunkin' Donuts, the Mister Donut franchise now operates mainly in Asian markets and is the largest donut chain operating in Japan. The taste of the doughnuts has been tailored to the Japanese palate and the selection is varied leading most patrons (in my observations) to enjoy three different doughnuts per visit. Not a huge fan of most american doughnuts, that are often very sweet and heavy, I find myself in the Mister Donut more often then I would like to admit. Mister Donut offers light and tasty regional and seasonal specials, mochi flower, green tea cake and sweet bean filled doughnuts - just to name a few.


  1. will you be checking out Krispy Kreme, opening in Shinsaibashi at the end of the month? I will probably wait until the madness dies down :)

  2. I didn't know that Osaka was getting the Krispy! I just returned from Tokyo a few hours ago, which is why the reply on other posts are late - sorry bout' that, where I narrowly missed having one at Ikebukuro station. The crowds were just too much for me at the time . . . so like you, I think I will wait out the madness.
