Japan often receives the highest recognition of having the finest chocolate in the world. It is because of special techniques that they’ve continuously been producing the desired characteristics and attributes of real chocolate. This is made possible by the countless chocolatiers available throughout the country. I will be suggesting only three of the finest chocolatiers located in Tokyo. Let’s get to know them and their chocolate creations!
100% Chocolate Cafe in Kyobashi has been beautifully designed in a space with all things chocolate. It serves an extensive menu of various chocolate kinds such as choco cakes and drinks as well as choco bars with different flavors. It is definitely one of the best chocolate corners in town with some varieties blended in cheese, black pepper or basil. Each flavor of chocolate comes in solid squares with colorful labels. You can actually try this chocolate first before purchasing.
