On the 22nd and 23rd of January 2011 the 5th National High School Bread Contest took place in the City of Izu No Kuni in the Izu Peninsula, Shizuoka Prefecture!
An “official view” of the 16 finalists’ breads!
A “sneaky view” of the same!
Out of a grand total of 162 contestants who made the first draft, 16 finalists were invited to the finals including no less than 4 participants from Shizuoka Prefectural Agricultural High School who competed against finalists coming as far as Yamaguchi and Iwate Prefecture!
The 16 finalists and the jugde panel posing for posterity!

Now, some people should be convinced by now that the Shizuoka Gastronomy has deep roots!
