Chocolates for St. Valentine’s Day 2014 (Part 3)

This is my last post about chocolates for St. Valentine’s Day in 2014.

In Tokyo, main stations have some shopping malls inside.
Shinagawa Station has “ecute Shinagawa,” where sweets, lunch boxes (bento in Japanese) and good restaurants are open.
I found a very cute chocolate here…

So cute! And it was like a cake with several chocolate pastes and fruit sauce sandwiched inside.


It’s a Japanese chocolate shop launched some years ago.
According to their pamphlet, their mission is to produce true Belgian chocolates.  Though I haven’t been to Belgium, I met a Belgian girl once in Australia…

They named themselves “Grand Place,” which is Brussels’ beautiful flower carpet. But the problem is that they don’t have any direct relations to Grand Place…

It happens often!
I see…
an accessory shop named “Paris” (no relation to Paris actually)
stew ingredients named “Hokkaido Stew”. (Hokkaido is  large Northern agricultural district of Japan, famous for corns, potatoes, carrots etc. The ingredients are not from Hokkaido. Just images.)

Are there something like this in your country?

    And you see, my photo techniques have developed so much!
    I always want to share the amazing, fantastic, delicious TASTES with you when I write about foods. I'm always short of words. Even today's technology is not enough!!
