The Easiest and Simplest Japanese Bread

Since you have decided to make bread, I hope you will bake it again and again, if possible. I’m extremely tedious myself, so I only use an electronic balance for measuring. Washing a butter knife is also a hassle, so I use olive oil. I adjusted the water content many times to make the dough easy to handle without being sticky and fluffy when baked.
